In reality, earthworm ecological groups (or 'ecotypes') are a bit more complex than the four categories that are commonly assigned. Keiron Derek Brown delves into the earthworm ecotypes in more detail in this FSC Virtual Meetup. Find out how to tell the different groups apart and how earthworms may not neatly conform to the four ecotypes.
FSC Virtual Meetups are short natural history webinars, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from either an FSC BioLinks team member or a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session.
