Alpha taxonomy is the discipline within biology concerned with delimiting, naming and describing organisms. It constitutes the basis for conducting systematic studies on our biodiversity at any level from cell to ecosystem. The course comprises theory, practical exercises, and a final project work where alpha taxonomical knowledge is used.
The theoretical part of the course, the first two weeks, is given on distance. The project work and written exam, the third week, are done locally at the university where you have been admitted to the course or the Nordic Master's Programme in Biodiversity and Systematics.
