Wriggling Into Recording: 10 Years of the National Earthworm Recording Scheme

Keiron Derek Brown
02 Feb 2023 13:00 – 14:00

The National Earthworm Recording Scheme was launched in 2014 by the Earthworm Society of Britain to tackle the low number of earthworm species occurrence records accessible to scientists and conservationists in the UK. With over 20,000 records now accessible to all through the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, we explore what the new data is telling us about earthworm ecology and distributions.

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.

Gardening For Earthworms

Earthworms are vital for maintaining healthy soils and provide a host of other benefits to garden habitats. However, few people realise we have 31 different species of earthworm in the British Isles, with differing requirements and providing different benefits. Keiron will provide tips and guidance on how you can improve the earthworm diversity and abundance within your garden, regardless of if you have a small urban garden or extensive grounds.

Information for speakers

entoL!VE webinars are a great way to engage with the ecology and conservation community, bringing together amateur naturalists and students with experts and sector professionals. We deal with all the admin, technology and hosting so that speakers can focus on their presentations and answering any questions during the live Q&A. We aim to host one entoL!VE webinar per week, though this may vary. The webinars are usually 1 hour long and the general format can be found below

  • 5 minute intro by the FSC Biodiversity project team
  • 40 minute presentation by guest speaker
  • 15 minute guest speaker Q&A session hosted by Keiron

Our audiences are interested in a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to) ecology, identification, recording and conservation so we will organise talks on a variety of taxa and projects.

Applications are now open for the 2023 programme of events via the online entoL!VE Speaker Application Form.
