The first FRESCO Summer School addresses a wide array of innovative interdisciplinary research tools used in coastal foraminiferal studies.
The summer school offers a combination of theoretical and practical courses and a field excursion.

After a common part dealing with foraminiferal biology, ecology and the biogeochemical functioning of coastal environments, two optional topics are proposed:
1) integrated experimental approaches (IEA)
2) bio-monitoring (BM)

Course leader
