Sectors: ecology, conservation & wildlife

The UK has 31 species of earthworms that can be found occurring in natural habitats that have been recorded to date. This presentation will explore these species and discuss what we know and what we don't know about them. We'll look at which species have been introduced from other parts of the world and highlight some species where the UK population could potentially be of global significance.

Keiron Derek Brown is the UK’s national recorder for earthworms, a trustee of the Earthworm Society of Britain and delivers training on earthworm ecology, surveying and identification across the UK.

This entoLEARN presentation is delivered by the Biological Recording Company on behalf of the Forest of Bowland AONB and Earthworm Society of Britain with funding from the Forest of Bowland National Landscape Hay Time Project.
