Description

This course covers the fundamentals of the science of systematics and allows students to familiarise themselves with the processes of 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 shaped it.
The course addresses three main topics:
(1) theoretical and practical aspects of taxonomy, systematics and nomenclature in plants, fungi and animals;
(2) the description, delimitation and classification of species with a special focus on molecular techniques;
(3) techniques in plant and animal systematics.
