This year Wild About Gardens is going wild about worms! These wriggly fellows are well known to gardeners all over. At first glance they might not seem particularly special, but they’re essential for our soils and wildlife. There are no less than 29 earthworm species in the UK and each one has an integral role in our ecosystem. It's time to take action for the worms in your garden!
The NERS Earthworm Recorder's Handbook was produced by the Earthworm Society of Britain to support existing and new earthworm recorders.
The handbook combines previous ESB guidance with new content and covers topics such as earthworm sampling techniques, earthworm preservation, recording earthworms and identifying earthworms.
This publication is currently available as a free-to-download resource as the ESB plans to update the document on a regular basis.
*The current version available for download was last updated on 27 September 2019.
