In addition to introducing foraminiferal communities, this study aims to investigate the relationships of these communities with the environmental parameters of water and sediment. Nine sediment samples were collected in 2019, from three stations in Qeshm Island. Environmental conditions including temperature, DO, salinity, pH, grain size, TOM, and CaCO3 were measured. Our results revealed that grain size, TOM, and DO factors controlling the diversity and distribution of benthic foraminifera. Thirty-five species from 26 genera and 21 families of foraminifer's assemblages were identified where Quinqueloculina was the most abundant genus in all stations.
