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.
