This course covers the fundamentals of systematics science and allows students to become familiar with the processes and tools involved in modern taxonomy. The importance of taxonomy and systematics in the description and management of biodiversity is explored alongside new approaches to the description, definition, classification and understanding of life on Earth, and the processes that shape it.
The course builds on frontal and interactive modes of education. At the end of the course, the students are given two case studies, one in botany and one in zoology (data to analyse, herbarium specimens, photos, descriptions, etc...) and are asked to answer to some of the main questions addressed during the 3 days. This course provides an immersion into collections of international relevance and develops all aspects of integrative taxonomy with examples and training in the collections. The mornings are dedicated to theoretical courses while the afternoons are spent in the collections.
