Short summary
This study reports the response of two intertidal foraminifera to increased temperatures on the level of carbon and nitrogen uptake. Interspecific variations in the ability to cope with shifting environmental variables within the two commonly associated species show that temperature and food source might be critical factors that control their abundances. This should support the interpretation of sediment samples and increase knowledge about nutrient fluxes through foraminiferal communities.
