Distributed European School of Taxonomy Training Courses Announced

The Distributed European School of Taxonomy (DEST, has launched two types of training courses at various European research facilities and universities. The Modern Taxonomy programme 2013-2014offers 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.

Within the latter programme, there are several entomological training courses and one of them specifically targets Hymenoptera:  
Collecting methods and identification of parasitic wasps, with special emphasis on Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)

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 or have a look at: 

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.
