INVERTEBRATE

Bird Watching (UK) - - Beyond Birdwatching -

EARTHWORM Fe­bru­ary is a great month to in­ves­ti­gate the unseen. Rummage around in the soil or gar­den com­post heap to lit­er­ally un­cover one of our most bi­o­log­i­cally im­por­tant groups of an­i­mals. Earth­worms are ecosys­tem en­gi­neers that cre­ate pores through which oxy­gen and wa­ter can en­ter the soil, and car­bon diox­ide can leave it. On­line keys can help you dif­fer­en­ti­ate between nearly 30 Bri­tish species.
