In the Spring quarter of 2020. I am going to teach an online course in ichthyoplankton taxonomy and systematics. The course is more comprehensive than the workshop (FW529) and includes lectures and discussion of morphology, systematics, sampling techniques, and curatorial challenges.

A preliminary Syllabus is available.

Please contact me if you have further questions (peter.konstantinidis@oregonstate.edu)



July 29th to August 3rd 2019


           Students (FW 529)                                                 Non-degree seeking participants

The lab and workshop is a 6-day intensive course dedicated to the systematics and identification of larval fishes. The goal is to equip participants with a skill set in identification of ichthyoplankton to family level or a lower taxonomic level. The lab will include daily lectures on taxonomic groups of marine fishes with the focal point on their larval characters. Participants are welcometo bring unidentified ichthyoplankton samples or mixed species lots to the course to help with their identification.
