De Wever Aaike
Dr.

After his PhD on the microbial food web in the tropical Lake Tanganyika (in collaboration with the CLIMLAKE-project), Aaike De Wever started working on microbial diversity and geography in the Antarctica using both morphological and molecular methods in the framework of the AMBIO-project.
