Finding and Identifying Beetles


27 July 2018 - 29 July 2018

Location: Juniper Hall Field Centre, Old London Road, Mickleham, Dorking, RH5 6DA, UK.

Event description

This exciting course at Juniper Hall will cover practical aspects of finding, identifying and recording beetles. The main focus of the course is on the diversity of beetles and their adaptations to their environment. Guidance on field and laboratory equipment and the treatment of specimens will be given, and on the literature, internet and other resources helpful in identification. The course is not aimed at experts but those people who would like to learn about beetles and to learn skills in fieldwork techniques, curation and identification of specimens.

Steve Bolchover has a Zoology degree from Oxford University and has been an amateur entomologist for many years. He is a County Recorder for Coleoptera (beetles) and has been delivering workshops and presentations about beetles and other invertebrates over the last 20 years. Steve has run very popular courses for the FSC since 2011.
