Abstract: The study indicates that both multivariate analyses and the FORAM index (FI) are dependable tools for evaluating water quality and reef health on coral reefs. The occurrence of foraminifera in reef areas is influenced by factors such as hydrodynamics and reworking processes. The abundance of smaller and stress-tolerant foraminifera, and the absence of symbiont-bearing taxa, suggesting unfavorable conditions for foraminifera in both the Pirangi and Maracajaú reef areas. Cluster analysis reveals distinct patterns of grouping sites among stations, which could be related to differences in ecological indices.
