Tardigrade species composition in Atlantic Rain Forest

The Atlantic Rain Forest presents one of the greatest species richness as well as high levels of plant and animal. This biome is among the eight most important hotspots for biodiversity conservation. In this way, it is fundamental to know the tardigrades species in this important brazilian biome.

Tardigrade species composition in South Atlantic Ocean

Brazil has about 1250 km of litoral in the south region, that comprehend sandy and rocky beaches. So, there are many opportunities to research on species of tardigrades in brazilian south Atlantic waters.
