Natural History Live by Bjorn Beckmann, Peter Sutton and Tim Gardiner

The sound of grasshoppers and crickets is evocative of the height of summer. They are among our largest and most abundant insects and play a crucial role in the food web. The talk gives an introduction to the species of Britain and Ireland, covering identification of the commonest species by sight and sound, and a look at their biology and ecology. We finish with a look at the Grasshopper Recording Scheme, and how your records help research and conservation – documenting declines, increases and new arrivals, and studying the underlying causes.

FSC Natural History Live webinars are free online learning experiences for adults, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session.
