We are expanding the number of webinars in the Diatom Web Academy during the pandemic.

Most sessions (but not all) will be recorded and can be accessed for later viewing. You are invited to join us, wherever you may be, from anywhere around the world.


UPCOMING

Tuesday July 7, 2020
10 AM - 12 PM (mountain time, US and Canada)
Marina Potapova, Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University
Mark Edlund, St. Croix Watershed Research Station
Navigating diatom nomenclature

Description: We use scientific names to describe and identify our diatoms. This workshop will introduce everyone to the International Code of Nomenclature that governs how we name organisms, why diatom names change, how to choose the correct name, and a set of best practices for applying the rules of nomenclature in our work.

Target Audience: This workshop is directed at algal taxonomists, analysts, students, researchers, and managers who need to understand the how and why behind scientific diatom names and using them correctly.
