The Earthworm Society of Britain AGM will be held this year at the Natural History Museum (London) in the Angela Marmont Centre.
The AGM will include reports on the activities and the successes of the society over the past 18 months and election of the ESB trustees, as well as talks from two fantastic speakers:
Weird Wormy Wonders of the Natural History Museum
Emma Sherlock will tell us all about the museum's best kept secret: it's collection of worms: from giant earthworms to strange marine worms that look like something from a sci fi movie. If we are lucky, Emma may even be ale to show us some of these strange creatures.
Earthworms in Land Restoration to Woodland
Dr Frank Ashwood will provide a brief overview of his PhD research into the role of earthworms as ecosystem service providers during landfill reclamation to woodland. If there's time, Dr Ashwood will also give us a quick introduction to his current work on earthworm dynamics in secondary and ancient woodland and their relationships with soil development and above-ground woodland ecology.
