Dear Taxacom readers,
It is difficult or impossible to teach taxonomy as part of undergraduate
degrees nowadays. Courses I know off are usually days to weeks. However, I
believe MSc options would be possible, with a mix coursework (including
practical) providing a breadth of knowledge, followed by a research project
doing taxonomy. They may focus on agricultural/marine/freshwater/insect etc.
Are there any such courses around?
