2nd Training Course of Chemical Methods in Marine Ecology

Location: Naples (Italy)
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2008-09-09    
End Date: 2008-09-12

Event Description:
The “2nd Training Course on Chemical Methods in Marine Ecology” deals with the chemical aspects related to identification, origin and [function] of low-molecular-weight metabolites involved in ecological interactions in marine communities. In particular, the meeting programme concerns investigations of secondary metabolites and their functional roles in mediating reproductive processes, prey-predator interactions, and competition. In this frame, lectures and demonstrations embrace theoretical aspects and practical analysis by techniques that are largely employed for terrestrial counterparts. The course is intended to have highly specialized lectures in the morning and practical classes in the afternoon.
