TRAINING COURSES IN MARINE BENTHIC TAXONOMY

Training Courses aim to provide high quality knowledge and technical tools to increase the skills and confidence of researchers in marine taxonomy. The courses are open to a restricted number of participants. DO NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!

Are you ready to work with worldwide – expert taxonomists?

In 2022…

  • Taxonomy of Sponges (3-8 October 2022)

The course has as objective to train the participants in integrative taxonomy of sponges. It will include lectures on morphological and molecular advancements combined with field and laboratory work, keeping in mind to provide the participants with a sound knowledge on systematics and species recognition. The course will be centered on Mediterranean species, although taxa from other seas will be considered to provide a wide picture on methods for species level determinations.

All the courses will be…

  • Leaded by worldwide – expert taxonomists.
  • Joined by several guest lecturers, world experts in morphological and molecular taxonomy, who will give guest lectures and work one-on-one with the participants in the lab.
  • Provide methods for documenting and describing organisms at the species-level while guiding the participants into applying them in phylogeny, evolution, ecology, etc.
  • Allow participants to work on recently sampled and/or preserved specimens while improving their practice in using identification keys and applying the biological and taxonomic criteria presented during the lectures.
  • Introduce the participants in the application of new digital imaging tools to taxonomy.
