Surveying Terrestrial Invertebrates for Biological Recording

4 May 2018 - 7 May 2018

£270 – £390

This course is designed for anyone interested in the amazing diversity of invertebrate life found in terrestrial habitats. It is suitable for both countryside professionals and amateur naturalists.

Field excursions will introduce a variety of collecting and surveying techniques appropriate to a range of habitats. These will be complemented by workshop sessions back at the Centre, helping you to identify specimens to the correct taxonomic group and, where appropriate, to species level. Illustrated talks will provide an insight into the diversity, ecology and conservation of invertebrates.

This course can contribute to the Biological Recording programmes run jointly with Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). Credits can contribute towards the University Certificate in Biological Recording and Species Identification and the MSc Biological Recording. To gain University Credits you must register in advance.
