Herre Stegenga

Algal specialist
Dr. Herre Stegenga is a marine biologist specialized in marine macro-algae at GiMaRIS. He has a guest employee engagement at Naturalis Biodiversity Centre. His exstensive expertise on macro algae is a rarity in Europe. He has discovered a large number of algae species throughout the recent decades that were new to the Netherlands. He is responsible for identifiying most of the algae that are found during the species inventories of GiMaRIS in shellfish areas that are carried out in the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, England and Ireland. GiMaRIS has created an still expanding reference collection of algae in shellfish production areas, based on these species inventories, which is unique for Europe and of great value for Herre and other researchers at GiMaRIS to identify algae.
