Dear all, 


The Distributed European School of Taxonomy (DEST, http://www.taxonomytraining.eu) has launched two types of training courses at various European research facilities and universities. The training curriculum targets both modern disciplines such as molecular systematics and biodiversity informatics, as well as the more ‘traditional’ approaches such as morphology and descriptive taxonomy. Courses are open to participants from Europe and outside of Europe. 


The Modern Taxonomy programme 2013-2014 offers intensive theoretical courses in subjects as varied as nomenclature and DNA-barcoding. 



The Expert-in-training programme 2013-2014 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 rotifers, Coleoptera, tropical plants and many more. 



New training providers are most welcome to participate in training delivery within the Distributed European School of Taxonomy. For more information, please mail us at dest-training at naturalsciences.be or have a look at: http://www.taxonomytraining.eu/content/interested-training-delivery  


PhD students within the Swedish Taxonomy Initiative, the Israel Taxonomy Initiative and the Research School in Biosystematics (ForBio) might receive support to attend DEST-courses. For details, please contact STI, ITI or ForBio. 


Thank you for spreading the word!  

With best regards, 




Dr Isabella Van de Velde

Dr Hendrik Gheerardyn
