Earthworms of the UK with The Biological Recording Company

Monday 8th April, 2024 - 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Learn about the 31 species of earthworm occurring in natural habitats across the United Kingdom with Keiron Derek Brown.

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.
