Abstract: Foraminiferal studies carried out on beaches, mudflats, estuaries and in nearshore shallow water regions along eastern coast line of India up to 50 m water depth, including Andaman and Nicobar Islands, have been reviewed. The review suggests that as far as beaches, mudflats and estuaries of east coasts are concerned, a total of 34 papers have been published, whereas, 82 research papers have dealt with foraminifera of shallow water regions. The review also shows that majority of the studies undertaken along eastern Indian coast have concentrated on taxonomic and/or ecological aspects and very few attempts have been made for applied aspects of foraminiferal contents. A bibliographical account and themewise review of various past publications have also been provided in this paper.
