More Than Just Fish Food: The ecosystem services provided by aquatic insects - Feb 2022

18 February 2022 13:00 - 14:00

Location: Online

Event description

Freshwater ecosystems cover less than 1% of the planet's surface but support up to 10% of known species. The ecosystem services and benefits provided by freshwater insects are diverse and unexpectedly wide-ranging including decomposition and nutrient cycling, food for a wider range of species including humans, and the inspiration for art, music, and literature.

This talk will explore some of these services and benefits with examples from around the world.

FSC Natural History Live webinars are free online learning experiences for adults, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom and we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event.
