As well as providing a solid grounding in sampling and surveying techniques for a wide range of terrestrial invertebrates, this course will be useful for both amateur naturalists and professional ecologists looking to expand their experience and knowledge. There will be opportunities to focus on some of the more accessible and popular invertebrate groups (butterflies and moths, grasshoppers and crickets, beetles and spiders), and to use microscopes for examination and identification of a selection of captured specimens.

Working in the natural environment, Lawrence Bee has developed a varied experience as an all-round field naturalist through extensive practical, hands-on work in the field of ecology and nature conservation. His particular interests include British geology, ancient trees and oak woodland, spiders, moths and plant galls. He is the co-author of the forthcoming WILDGuide ‘Britain’s Spiders’.
