About the event

Leaf beetles are numerous, widespread, and found in all terrestrial habitats. Some are large or colourful, and others are of economic importance. Sometimes they are conspicuous, but often they require a degree of diligence to record. They are ecologically important, and valuable for habitat assessment. There are difficult groups within the family, and this can be off-putting, but many are easily recognised in the field, and careful collecting, with attention paid to habitat and food plants, can aid greatly.

This course will examine the characteristics of the group, the features used to identify them, the field techniques used to find them, and how to distinguish the easy ones from the difficult ones. Emphasis will be placed on field methods, but there will also be opportunity to use microscopes and keys for identification of specimens caught on the day or provided for the purpose.
