National Insect Week returns in 2020

Bees, Hoverflies and Flowers at Amersham

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 00:00

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.

Martin Harvey tutors regularly for FSC. He is an ecologist specialising in insect conservation, and also works for the Biological Records Centre, helping to support a range of national recording schemes
