Bees, Hoverflies and Flowers: Pollinators and Pollination
Saturday 30th Jun 2018
10:00 am - 04:00 pm
Bees, hoverflies and other pollinating insects play an enormously important role in natural habitats and agricultural systems alike. Some pollinators are known to be declining, and their conservation is a cause for concern.
This course introduces the insects that play a role in pollination, helping you to recognise them, understand how they interact with flowering plants, and find out how to play your part in conserving them. Based in Bushy Park.
Martin Harvey tutors regularly for FSC and for Manchester Metropolitan Museum. He is an entomologist and biological recorder, working at the national Biological Records Centre (where he is involved with the national Pollinator Monitoring Scheme) and for a range of clients. Martin runs recording schemes for moths and soldierflies.
