Prof. Dr Tom Moens

Prof. Dr. Tom Moens is a professor in benthic ecology. His main areas of research interest involve the study of marine benthic food webs, with particular emphasis on meiofauna; biodiversity – ecosystem functioning relationships; and population genetics and (micro) evolution in marine nematodes. His main focus is on intertidal and shallow coastal systems in temperate areas. He has been involved in a variety of nationally and internationally funded projects. He has (co) authored more than 90 peer-reviewed articles and several book chapters. He has acted as a reviewer for >40 international journals, and is an associate editor of the JMBA and its ‘twin’ journal, Marine Biodiversity Records.
