Soil Mesofauna: ecology and identification

Thursday, April 14, 2016 to Sunday, April 17, 2016
This four-day course will give you an overview of soil ecology, provide you with skills and experience in identifying soil organisms to various taxonomic levels, and provide you with the information you need to collect, examine, identify and record soil organisms. In particular the course concentrates on Springtails (Collembola) and Soil Mites (Acari), but the entire soil fauna is introduced and attendees have some latitude to pursue what interests them most.
