Taxonomic skills are in increasing demand among the Canadian conservation community. This course will provide students with in-depth taxonomic training. The course will include lecture, lab, and field components taught by taxonomic experts and will be held over 37.5h during the second last week of April. Students will be required to choose training for one taxonomic group. This term (Summer 2019) we will be offering the following taxon:
- Ontario Fishes (Lec 0101)
- Ontario Birds (Lec 0102)
- Ontario Plants(Lec 0103)
Students will be responsible for fully attending all components of the course and complete in-class exercises.
Please submit to the Graduate Unit, for Departmental approval, your taxonomic preferences using the EES3003H taxonomic placement survey.
Note: This is a mandatory course for the students in the Conservation and Biodiversity field of study.
