ICES/ MARBEF Zooplankton Taxononomic workshop

Location: The Laboratory, Citadel Hill Plymouth, UK
Event Type: Training Course
Event Date: 2006-06-20    
End Date: 2006-06-23

Event Description:
SAHFOS will run a training workshop supported by MARBEF, as part of a series initiated by ICES in order to improve and calibrate the present taxonomic knowledge among scientists working on zooplankton in the North Atlantic and European shelf seas. The workshop focussed on Crustacean zooplankton and is aimed primarily scientists and technicians involved in regular analysis of zooplankton samples (parataxonomists) and researchers in plankton ecology who are not primarily taxonomists.
