This course will help both professional ecologists and amateur naturalists learn how to collect and identify freshwater univalve molluscs. Field excursions will involve discussion of the best ways for practical collecting, preserving and identification.
Voucher specimens and viewing live specimens under the microscope will help you identify the animals to family or species level as appropriate.
There will also be illustrated talks to increase your understanding of this diverse group of organisms, which form part of the food chain for many other animals.
The content is also appropriate for anyone wishing to contribute to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
Adrian Chalkley was a teacher for 34 years and has been studying pond and river life for most of that time.
He has been a member of the Freshwater Biological Association for 25 years and the Suffolk county recorder for freshwater invertebrates for 20 years.
