Dear everyone, ForBio (Nordic Research School in Biosystematics) invites applicants to the course DNA-barcoding – from sequences to species. This course will be delivered ONLINE February 15 to 19, 2021: 30 hours of online live lessons and classes, as well as assignments for a written home exam (essay format). A good internet connection is required to follow the course. The course is open to everyone, but priority is on ForBio members, in particular PhD students and early career researchers from Nordic countries. Please see the ForBio course website for more information and how to apply. Deadline is January 10th!
Join us on Dec 3-4 for the ForBio – Research School in Biosystematics Annual Meeting. ForBio is organising a different annual meeting this year. We want to provide a platform to share your research and meet, but this should also be safe and inclusive. We will have a fully virtual ForBio Annual Meeting! All MSc and PhD students, postdocs, supervisors, faculty and the broader biosystematics community are invited to attend the 10th ForBio Annual Meeting, organised by the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo.
Sign up to attend, give a talk or present a poster/lightning talk by November 8th!

Är taxonomin verkligen det moderna, reproducerbara och inkluderande vetenskapsfält som det strävar efter att vara? Denna granskning av artbeskrivningar av svampar finner många förändringar till det bättre över tiden, men den gör samtidigt en del svårsmälta observationer som manar till eftertanke kring hur vi tar fram och kommunicerar taxonomiska resultat.
