A Beginners Guide to Insects
A Biodiversity Data Centre Event in partnership with the National Museum of Ireland
Fee €20 students €30 other
Insects are the unrecognised and under-appreciated regulators of a healthy environment, “the little things the run the world” (E.O. Wilson, 1987). 11,500 species of insects are known to occur in Ireland, representing one third of all species found nationally. With the aid of collected specimens from the Natural History Museum of the National Museum of Ireland, this workshop aims to illuminate the major insect groups that occur in Ireland and amongst other topics explore what characteristics make each group unique and different from one another. N.B. this workshop is for beginner recorders.
