• Biodiversity Monitoring Switzerland

Butterfly identification course

As part of the Swiss Systematics Society’s five-stage education concept, Biodiversity Monitoring Switzerland (BDM) and the Swiss Biological Records Center (CSCF) jointly offer basic training in identifying Switzerland’s butterflies. While the course is aimed at all biologists and biology students, it is particularly meant to appeal to persons highly interested in later extending their expertise by advanced training in order to enable them to take part in BDM butterfly monitoring.

If you are interested in a course, please contact us by e-mail or phone.

Hotspot special edition

The Hotspot special edition on 20 years of BDM shows who works behind the data and highlights current developments in biodiversity.
