Short courses at HOORC

BIOKAVANGO and the ESPMO projects have sponsored several short courses at HOORC in the past two weeks.

The first taught participants the use of the statistical package for fish data analysis called PASGEAR. In the second, from May 18th to 22nd May 2009, Angolan team members of the ESPMO Project participated in a course on macroinvertebrates, covering biological monitoring, assessment procedures, field work techniques (sampling protocol, selecting sites approach), laboratory techniques for aquatic macro invertebrates identification, aspects of water quality monitoring vis a vis Eflows, and statistical analysis and data management for aquatic macroinvertebrates.
