Mrs Tania Campinas Bezerra

Tania Nara Bezerra is Biologist, with masters in Oceanography and Nematology. Specialized on the Biology, Taxonomy and Ecology of free-living marine nematodes, their role on the meiofauna and on the food-web. Presently works part-time on the Taxonomy of free-living nematodes from Norwegian and part-time on a PhD. For the PhD she investigates free-living nematodes, specially predators, to determine how trophic and ‘indirect’ interactions influence the diversity and functioning of the meiobenthic assemblage at Paulina tidal flat, SW Nederlands.
