EMBOS Training Course on Marine Biodiversity

The first EMBOS Training School on Marine Biodiversity will be organized at IH Cantabria, Santander, Spain from 21 to 25 May, 2013, for international students and young researchers that are interested in marine biodiversity.


The EMBOS Action is focusing on two major aspects that will form the basis of a Marine Biodiversity Observatory System. Firstly, a pan-European large-scale network of marine biodiversity observatory sites is prepared, and secondly a validated system of indicators is composed which will detect status and change in marine biodiversity including ecosystem health. Pilots to test the system and training schools are part of the Action.


In the Training Schools students and young researchers can experience how marine biodiversity is observed and analysed, and how biodiversity indicators are calculated and used in science and policy.

During the present Training School in Santander in May 2013 the participants will be presented a theoretical and practical overview of the status of biodiversity research in Europe. Participants will take part in field trips and sampling of biota in soft-sediments and on hard-substrates, taxonomic determination of species, lectures on marine biodiversity and biodiversity indicators in use in different regions of Europe, mathematical analyses of biodiversity (indicators), introduction on networking among European biodiversity researchers, and discussion groups on the use of biodiversity indicators as used in the different regions for policy (including the MSFD).
