Prof. Dr Vanreusel, Ann


Prof, Dr. Ann Vanreusel is head of the research group Marine Biology of Ghent University (Belgium) . Since her phD (1984-1989) and post doc research (from 1990) , she became an expert in benthos research with a focus on meiofauna (nematodes) . Ann Vanreusel, since 2000 part of the academic staff (professor) , has focused her most recent research on the ecology of extreme marine environments including abyssal ecosystems including poly-metallic nodule areas, submarine canyons, cold water corals, cold seeps, polar deep-sea and Antarctic coastal systems.

Thesaurus terms: Benthos; Climate change; Deep sea; Environmental impact; polar ecology
Taxonomic term: Nematoda [WoRMS]
