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.
