Beetles are almost everywhere - one animal in four is a beetle and almost half a million species so far have been described. There are about 4,000 species in Britain. This course will allow you to become familiar with the range of beetles which can be collected in terrestrial habitats - woodland, grassland and scrub - around Preston Montford Field Centre. Participants will be introduced to basic beetle nomenclature, anatomy and identification through local fieldwork and laboratory work. With an emphasis on the familes Carabidae and Staphylinidae, the course will also consider the relationship between beetles and human society and discuss the use of beetles in forensic investigations.
Chris Terrell-Nield is a Principal Lecturer and Subject Leader at Nottingham Trent University. He is a fellow of the Royal Entomolological Society and has a special interest in the analysis of arthropod communities.
