Research School in Biosystematics – ForBio
Our ambition is to train a new generation of biosystematists to meet the society’s needs for biodiversity expertise and at the same time to strengthen the research in biosystematics in the Nordic countries. To achieve that, we offer a wide range of both practical and theoretical courses in biosystematics and provide a platform for facilitating teaching and research collaboration between Nordic research institutes.

The course presents several aspects of insect handling in field and in collections. You will get hands-on experience in collecting, handling, sorting, identifying and preserving of insects. We will broadly cover different taxonomic levels/groups, and provide some opportunities to dive deeper into some of them.
