Dinamarca.- La Intergovernmental Oceanographic Comission (IOC) de UNESCO viene convocado a la presentación de solicitudes para la participación en el “IOC Training Course and Identification Qualification in Harmful Marine Microalgae 2014”.

El curso esta dividido en dos partes. La primera parte del curso es un programa de enseñanza vía internet; mientras que la segunda parte incluye el taller práctico de identificación de especies. El curso es organizado por al University of Copenhagen.

Contenido:

Part I - Distant learning: The distant learning programme consists of 8 modules. There is a short introductory text to each module, and at the beginning of this text is given a list of suggested reading, which will usually include selected articles (supplied as PDF-files) or paragraphs in the general text book used in the course. This part of the course includes 45 hours of teaching.
 
Part II - Workshop on species identification:  The workshop will focus on identification of harmful algal species, with particular reference to the 'IOC Taxonomic Reference List on Toxic Plankton Algae'. During the workshop species will be demonstrated either as cultures (*subject to the availability of cultures at the Scandinavian Culture Collection of Algae and Protozoa) or as preserved material. Focus will be on light microscopy.
