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.

If you’re interested in earthworms but don’t feel ready for a beginner’s ID workshop, then this day is for you! It’s a day for people who are fascinated by earthworms but don’t know where to start with them. It’s a very gentle introduction to the world of earthworms and the art (and science!) of telling one kind from another.
