The student of Masters in Sciences with Mention in Oceanography, of the Millennium Institute of Oceanography (IMO), Pamela Fierro; realice an internship in France from January 9 to February 10, 2017.
The internship, developed at the Pierre et Marie Curie University is offered through the collaboration between the Universidad de Concepcion and the institution. On this occasion, Pamela worked with Dr. Claude Razouls, a world-renowned copepod taxonomist. "With him I studied taxonomy both in literature (by keys) complementing the observation in magnifying glass of some organisms of our ocean corresponding to my thesis in the seamounts in the dorsal Juan Fernandez", maintains the marine biologist. It should be noted that Dr. Razouls maintains all existing references worldwide with respect to this group of zooplankton.
The experience allowed the young student a further develop of her research project, in addition to complementing her professional curriculum. "It is a great feedback to interact with someone so wise, absorb knowledge and learn study forms, considering that I am still in the process of training taxonomy. Sharing experiences and approaches on the same topic in different generations, besides motivating, allows the prevalence of knowledge in an area of classical science as the taxonomy of copepods, "concludes Pamela.
Banyuls-sur-Mer was the city where the internship took place, which kept the student of the Millennium Institute of Oceanography in France for a month.
