The Marine Organism Taxonomy Service at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn of Naples has launched a series of Advanced Zooplankton Courses (AZC) to provide an advanced training on integrative morphological and molecular taxonomy of marine zooplankton.

AZC1 will be focused on copepods and will improve and update the expertise in species identification of selected families: Aetideidae, Paracalanidae, Spinocalanidae, Corycaeidae, Oithonidae, and Oncaeidae, which are diverse, common and abundant in epipelagic and/or mesopelagic oceanic waters.

The course will also provide an opportunity to interact and discuss with specialized experts on new challenges of marine copepods taxonomy in the molecular era.
