An introduction to Beewalk
Wyn Hughes will introduce you to these fascinating protozoans. The course will cover their biology, sampling methods, photomicroscopy and identification. Their existence since the Cambrian has enabled their use for age and depositional environmental interpretation, and living forms are today being used as indicators of environmental health.
This course is organised by Cofnod. It is a rare opportunity to learn more about these fascinating creatures and examine some representatives of the UK fauna. The course is aimed at beginners, and no previous microscope experience is necessary.
