Short Course on ‘Seaweed Biodiversity & Biogeography’



I launched a short Course on ‘Seaweed Biodiversity & Biogeography’, organised by the University of Mauritius in collaboration with the University of Cape Town (South Africa). The short course aims at increasing scientific knowledge, enhancing expertise in taxonomic classification and raising awareness on local seaweed biodiversity and distribution among students at the tertiary level, technical personnel and concerned stakeholders. I wish that this short course will be fruitful to all participants !
