What: Intensive two-week course with an opportunity to take taxonomic certification exams.
When: Course runs June 28–July 9; Taxonomic Certification Program exams will be offered on July 9.
Where: Highlands Biological Station in Highlands, North Carolina (map below).

John Morse, Ph.D., of Clemson University will teach Southern Appalachian Mayflies, Stoneflies, and Caddisflies (session 2) from June 28-July 9. The course covers the natural history and taxonomy of mayflies (Ephemeroptera), stoneflies (Plecoptera), and caddisflies (Trichoptera), including systematics, ecology, and behavior of larvae and adults, with emphasis on those aspects important in ecological studies, biological monitoring of water quality, and sports fishing. Insects will be collected from diverse mountain stream habitats, and identifications will be performed in the laboratory. Students may opt to take the Society for Freshwater Science’s Taxonomic Certification exam of eastern EPT to genus at the end of the course.
