Determination Course of Freshwater and Terrestrial Cyanobacteria

Due to the epidemiological situation was the course in the year 2020 canceled !!!

The next course will be held from 27. to 31. July 2020


In the year 2020 the Course will be preceded by Euglenoid determination course. Participants, who will attend also the euglenoid course may ask for one invoice covering both courses. 

The five day course is focused on determination of freshwater and terrestrial Cyanobacteria in context with modern taxonomical approaches. It consists of theoretical lectures of systematic classification, ecology and taxonomic criteria of Cyanobacteria, and of microscopic sessions with practical identification. Determination of participant's own material is possible.
One day is dedicated to excursion. Participants may choose between a "cultural trip" to famous medieval town and castle Český Krumlov or a "adventure trip", a canoe trip through the valley of Vltava river.
Participants may bring their own samples or micrographs (in reasonable amount) to discuss determination.
