The Earthworm Recording Info Sheet provides a 1-page summary of record submission and suitable ID resources. The sheet was designed in partnership with the FSC BioLinks project as a handout on all earthworm recording and identification events and courses.
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.
