Culturing and microscopy techniques for the analysis of phytoplankton diversity

MicTechPhyto_2021

Culturing and microscopy techniques for the analysis of phytoplankton diversity

Belgium
Training Center

Phytoplankton comprises a range of very different organism from tiny and almost featureless picoplankton taxa to large diatoms and dinoflagellates nearing 1 mm in diameter. They essentially form the base of the food web and therefore a detailed knowledge of this diverse group of organisms is vital for developing an understanding of marine communities and their interactions with their environment and with each other. Unfortunately, the diversity of methods available for the quantitative and qualitative analysis is almost as diverse as the phytoplankton itself. This course will take you through the most important methodologies for quantitative and qualitative (non-molecular) biodiversity assessments of phytoplankton.

Educating about the Ocean: Waves of change

OL_Edu_2021

Educating about the Ocean: Waves of change

Belgium
Training Center

We all depend on the ocean, yet Ocean Literacy needs to be further enhanced worldwide. Formal and non-formal educators are key to advance ocean sustainability.
