Event description
The humble earthworm is valued by farmers and gardeners alike for its contribution to healthy soils.

About this event

If you dig two holes in a field, you can find earthworms in the soil from one hole but not the other. What controls the distribution of earthworms has remained a poorly understood question since the time of Darwin.

In this talk, we’ll discuss whether finding earthworms in soil is a good indicator of healthy soil, what factors control the presence of earthworms in soil and how many holes you have to dig to find an earthworm.

FSC Natural History Live webinars are free online learning experiences for adults, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom and we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event.
