Determination Course of Freshwater and Terrestrial Cyanobacteria

The next course will be held from 31. July to  4. August 2017

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.
