Surveying Terrestrial Invertebrates for Biological Recording
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 is one of a series of courses (Units) run jointly with Manchester Metropolitan University contributing to the MSc Biological Recording and Ecological Monitoring and the Postgraduate Certificate in Biological Recording. To gain university credits you must be registered for the programme in advance of this course. For further details please contact:
