Distributed European School of Taxonomy Training courses 2013/14
The Distributed European School of Taxonomy (DEST, http://www.taxonomytraining.eu) has launched two types of training courses at various European research facilities and universities. The training curriculum targets both modern disciplines such as molecular systematics and biodiversity informatics, as well as the more ‘traditional’ approaches such as morphology and descriptive taxonomy. Courses are open to participants from Europe and from outside of Europe.
1) The Modern Taxonomy programme 2013-2014 offers intensive theoretical courses in subjects as varied as nomenclature and DNA-barcoding.

2) The Expert-in-training programme 2013-2014 enables graduate students and early career researchers to develop and strengthen their taxonomic research skills through on-the-job-training. The programme includes a great diversity of topics and covers various groups, such as rotifers, Coleoptera and tropical plants.
