Ape Halictus su fiore di convolvoloSono già 10 le persone iscritte al nostro corso DEST - Distributed European School of Taxonomy sugli impollinatori.

Dal 1° al 5 luglio 2019 al Museo di Storia Naturale di Ferrara ospiterà il corso Taxonomy of Pollinators dedicato alle api selvatiche ed ai ditteri sirfidi: entrambi i gruppi svolgono l'importantissimo ruolo di impollinatori per piante e raccolti. Inoltre, i sirfidi sono ottimi indicatori di biodiversità, che consentono di valutare la conservazione degli ecosistemi naturali e di quelli gestiti dall'uomo, grazie al metodo Syrph the Net.

Il corso è rivolto a studenti universitari e giovani ricercatori, ai tecnici ambientali ed agli appassionati di entomologia desiderosi di migliorare le proprie competenze.

Le domande di iscrizione vanno presentate direttamente a DEST - Distributed European School of Taxonomy.
Tutor del corso saranno Carla Corazza, ricercatrice del Museo, Daniele Sommaggio, esperto di Sirfidi, e Marino Quaranta, esperto di api. Il corso è organizzato con il CREA - Ricerca in Agricoltura di Bologna e con il Consorzio Futuro in Ricerca di Ferrara.

Tutte le informazioni per partecipare al corso 2019 si trovano alla pagina web http://taxonomytraining.eu/courses/2019/pollinators
