Advanced Phytoplankton Course / 19 may to 8 june 2019
APC12, the 12th edition of the renowned international course on marine phytoplankton, will be held at the Station Biologique de Roscoff in France from 19 May to 8 June 2019.
The APC, initiated in the 1970s at the University of Oslo with the support of UNESCO and its Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, has been held from 1985 to 2015 at the Stazione Zoologica of Naples and in 2012 at the University of Copenhagen. APC12 will be the first edition held in France. The course is open to 20 selected researchers, technical staff, and/or PhD/postdoctoral students from around the world who already have expertise in taxonomy of marine phytoplankton and routinely need to identify it in a professional context. The aim is to provide participants with updated and in-depth high-level theoretical and practical training on how to identify and classify members of the major marine phytoplankton groups (diatoms, dinoflagellates, coccolithophores and other phytoflagellates), including species responsible for the formation of exceptional or harmful algal blooms.
