IEM pre-meet seminar: Stoneflies and Priority Species

Monday 20th March, 2023 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Online via Zoom

Join us to discuss Irish stoneflies, other under-recorded groups, and how to assess a species current conservation status.

At our first Irish Entomology Meeting online pre-meet, meet some of our local entomology and conservation experts. The idea of these meetings is to enjoy a talk from experts and join in on a discussion to debate issues influencing or impacting our invertebrates, from data deficiency to climate change to policy and legislation reform.

In our first seminar, we will be chatting to Dr. Hugh Feeley, the leading Irish expert in Irish Stoneflies, and following up with Niamh Carmichael of CEDaR NI who is heavily involved with the Northern Ireland Priority Species list review. Following these talks, we’ll open the floor to be able to explore a wide range of questions and topics such as what are the challenges facing under-recorded taxa, what makes the NI Priority Species list critical for conservation in Northern Ireland, and how can we make conservation work across Ireland?
