2nd Estuarine & Marine Littoral Taxonomy Workshop

Event Type: Training Course
Event Date: 2005-09-12    
End Date: 2005-09-16

Event Description:

This workshop aims to teach participants how to identify the crustacea
commonly found in the harsh estuarine and marine littoral environments,
including isopods, decapods, amphipods mysids, tanaids, cumaceans and
leptostracans, to species level. Participants will be taught by the
experts, Roger Bamber, Ray Ingle and Miranda Lowe from the Natural History
Museum, and Martin Sheader from Southampton Oceanography Centre.

The workshop will be taught over five days and is aimed at people working
in the estuarine and marine littoral environment, either in the water
industry, as consultants, as academics or even those pursuing higher
degrees. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to use
up-to-date taxonomic keys and hold a certificate of competence in the
subject. As the workshop will be run on an informal basis, participants are
welcome to bring along any specimens they have found difficult to identify.

Places on this workshop are limited to 16 so early booking is essential.
