Earthworms are crucial for soil health, but we know relatively little about their distributions, population sizes and impacts from land management and invading species. This two-day course will look at sampling techniques, identification and ecology of earthworms. It is aimed at supporting and encouraging recording so we can establish a better picture of this species group in Ireland.
Centre for Environmental Data and Recording (CEDaR) Training Courses are aimed at anyone interested in wildlife. It is hoped that attendees will become wildlife recorders; recording what they see around them and submitting their records to CEDaR Online Recording – www.habitas.org.uk/records.
