Advanced Phytoplankton Course - APC 12

APC12 is organized by the Station Biologique de Roscoff together with the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn and the IOC Science and Communication Centre on Harmful Algae.

APC 12 aims to provide participants with in-depth expert knowledge on the identification, classification and phylogeny of marine microalgae (diatoms, dinoflagellates, coccolithophores, other phytoflagellates) by integrating morphological observations with molecular data and new approaches.

The intensive 3-week course will consist of lectures, practical sessions and guest seminars. A diverse collection of preserved and live material will be offered for examination in light and (for selected taxa) electron microscopy. The course will cover: methods and criteria for species identification; up-to-date taxonomic frameworks; morphological and molecular phylogeny; toxic and harmful species; general and specific aspects of phytoplankton biodiversity and biogeography.
