2020 Marine Invertebrate Courses
Ocean Ecology are teaming up with the Field Studies Council (FSC) to deliver an intensive multi-day marine vertebrate course at FSC Millport (Isle of Cumbrae) in August 2020. The course is aimed specifically at those who have aspirations of studying marine invertebrates either in a commercial or research laboratory setting and will provide attendees with the base level understanding of taxonomy and practical laboratory skills needed in such roles.
This course will run be over a maximum of four days but will be broken down into three independent sessions with delegates having the choice of attending either the full programme or just the first two days. The first part of the course will be a two-day ‘Introduction to Marine Invertebrates’ that will cover the identification of marine invertebrates, with a focus on major phyla, orders, and classes, plus their basic morphology and taxonomy.
