Exploring Earthworm Ecology

Virtual Meet Ups (VMUs)

These Virtual Meet Ups are an opportunity to keep in touch and share skills and knowledge during lockdown. They are short natural history webinars, comprising of a 30-50 minute talk followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom, we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event.

Exploring Earthworm Ecology

The UK is home to 29 different species of earthworm, and these come in a variety of colours and sizes. Different earthworms can be found in different habitats, with British earthworms breaking down into 4 broad ecological groupings. Keiron (FSC BioLinks Project Manager) will discuss how to recognise the four ‘ecotypes’ by observing the behaviour, size and colour of an earthworm, as well as introducing some of the lesser known specialist earthworms that you can find in unusual places.
