CORALGAMAP – SummerSchools@EXPO 2015

L’Università di Milano-Bicocca lancia il progetto Summer Schools@EXPO2015, un programma di corsi dedicati ai temi dell’Esposizione Universale aperti a studenti stranieri e italiani e tenuti in lingua inglese (sito dedicato SummerSchools@EXPO2015)

Le scuole proposte sono 23, tutte in lingua inglese, e impegneranno oltre 100 docenti e ricercatori dell’Università per oltre 600 ore di lezione.

Tra queste vogliamo segnalare una scuola che ci riguarda da vicino organizzata dalla Professoressa Daniela Basso:

CORALGAMAP – CORALLINE ALGAE IN A MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH

Description: The crustose coralline algae (CCA) are one of the most widespread group of marine benthic habitat engineers. CCA bio-concretions are hotspots of biodiversity and providers of several goods and services to society, i.e. as highly productive fishing sites. Since CCA are completely calcified, they are frequently preserved as fossil, and may represent important paleoecological tool and economic resources (oil industry, building). As they are relevant both to bioscience (from molecular biology to ecology) and to geoscience (geomorphology, habitat mapping, paleoecology etc.), they should be approached by taking advantage of cross-fertilization from all these disciplines. The school is aimed at providing the basis for: 1) identification, mapping (geoacoustics), and monitoring of CCA-dominated habitats; 2) species identification in biological and fossil material; 3) ecology/paleoecology, and geochemistry of CCA. A full-immersion week with lessons and practical activities, to ground common concepts and improve specific expertise on coralline algae.
