This Course is being organized in cooperation by the Marine Biological Section of the Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn, Naples, Italy, and the IOC Science and Communication Centre on Harmful Algae.

The course will consist of training on specific recognition of marine planktonic algae, with emphasis on light microscopy and use of taxonomic literature. The aim of the course is to increase and update the expertise of the students in the identification of diatoms, dinoflagellates, coccolithophores and other phytoflagellates. Special attention will be given to species implicated in the formation of exceptional or harmful blooms.
