EMBRC IT LOGOThe Marine Organism Taxonomy (MOTax) core facility has launched a series of International Summer Schools (BENTACS - BENthos TAxonomy CourseS) focused on the taxonomy of the main groups of zoo-benthos from soft-bottom communities in the Mediterranean Sea. The courses will target in particular researchers and technicians from scientific institutions and from national/regional environmental agencies interested in the study of benthos biodiversity and ecology. A combination of lectures and microscope sessions will provide participants with a general theoretical framework and practical experience.

The 1st MOTax course will provide an advanced training on the taxonomy and identification of Polychaetes. It will be held at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn in Naples on 24-28 October 2022. The course will be focused on specific families of the largest class of annelids selected based on their ecological relevance, including species for which the taxonomic identification is particularly challenging.

Pectinaria koreni prostomioParticipants will be guided by expert taxonomists into the examination of preserved collections from different Mediterranean regions, as well as into the identification of their own samples. The course will offer an opportunity to discuss new challenges and perspectives into the fields of Polychaetes taxonomy and ecology.
