The workshop is designed to cover the identification of the major
soft coral genera which can be found in the warm, shallow waters
of the broader Indo-Pacific region, and to demonstrate how to
distinguish between species and genera.
The intensive 4 day workshop will include an overview of the variety
of soft coral forms, the internal and external taxonomic characters,
and the laboratory techniques employed in analysing these
characters. The workshop will adopt a predominantly hands on
approach, with participants critically examining examples of each
genus. Opportunities to present posters on soft coral chemistry will
also be available.
The workshop will be conducted by Dr Phil Alderslade, curator of
Cnidaria at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory,
