The Distributed European School of Taxonomy (DEST), an initiative under the CETAF umbrella and managed by RBINS, has launched its NEW website and training programme for 2014-2015!
Check out the Modern Taxonomy programme offering intensive theoretical courses in various subjects. Also, have a look at the Expert-in-training programme enabling trainees to develop and strengthen their taxonomic research skills through on-the-job-training.
Several of our training courses focus on freshwater taxa and might be of particular interest to you:
- Training program in non-marine diatoms from the (sub-) Antarctic Region
- Training programme in Crustacean systematics with specialisation in Cyclopidae (Copepoda)
- Systematics of freshwater subterranean Malacostraca: Morphology, molecular systematics, and web-taxonomy
