Springtail sampling video guide

The FSC Tomorrow's Biodiversity team is working with Pete Boardman and other Shropshire entomologists, biological recorders and citizen scientists to increase our understanding of the distribution of Springtails (Collembola) in Shropshire.  In this short film Pete Boardman explains how to use the contents for the citizen scientists springtail pack to collect a springtail sample and return it for identification. Springtail records collected in this way will contribute directly to the Shropshire Springtail Atlas.

If you live in or near Shropshire and would like to request a pack, please email [email protected]
