This webinar will look at why invertebrate sampling is a valuable method of site assessment when looking to improve or manage sites for biodiversity. It will discuss what sort of surveys are needed to carry out to find invertebrates, how to undertake or commission these surveys and what kind of outputs are needed to then analyse the survey results. It will also look at sampling invertebrates in local site based and larger landscape scale surveys.
By the end of this webinar attendees will be able to describe different invertebrate sampling methods and explain the importance of structured surveying.
Learners will be introduced to the following concepts throughout the webinar :
- Why sample invertebrates? The law, and ethics around invertebrate surveying
- Site selection for invertebrate sampling
- Appropriate sampling methods for invertebrate groups.
- How to sample to enable Pantheon analysis of survey results
- How to conduct landscape scale invertebrate monitoring.
