Dear all, 

Distributed European School of Taxonomy (DEST, http://www.taxonomytraining.eu),
originally funded by the EC in the framework of the EDIT project, has launched
two types of training courses at various European research facilities and
universities. The programme is open to participants from Europe and outside of

The “Modern
Taxonomy theoretical course programme 2012-2013” offers intensive theoretical
courses in subjects as varied as nomenclature; describing, writing and
illustrating biodiversity; and phylogenetic systematics. 
More info:
“Expert-in-training programme 2012-2013” enables graduate students and early
career researchers to develop and strengthen their taxonomic research skills
through on-the-job-training. The programme includes a great diversity of topics
and covers various groups such as diatoms, copepods and tropical plants.

For both
programmes, DEST is offering a number of grants to help defray expenses
associated with course attendance, travel and accommodation. In allocating
grants, priority will be given to selected participants coming from economically
less-favoured regions. 

New training
providers are most welcome to participate in training delivery within the
Distributed European School of Taxonomy. For more information, please mail us
