02/02/2023 Wriggling Into Recording: 10 Yrs of the National Earthworm Recording Scheme 1 hour Days

Virtual, entoLIVE

Earthworms are widely-regarded as ecologically important and recognised as ecosystem engineers yet remain under-studied and we have little species-specific information on the species that inhabit the British Isles. We'll explore how earthworm researchers are using the earthworm records generated over the last 10 years to improve our understanding of earthworms.

13/03/2023 The Most Remarkable Migrants of All: The Fascinating World of Fly Migration 0.5 Day

Zoom, entoLIVE

1-4 billion hoverflies migrate into and out of Britain each year. Despite these migratory insects helping control pest species and providing pollination services, migratory flies do not receive anywhere close to the same attention within research as vertebrates. An Exeter University study on insect migration is addressing this knowledge gap.
