Focus on Freshwater Invertebrates
Freshwater refers to our rivers, lakes and ponds and entoLIVE will be shining a light on the research looking at the invertebrates found in these ecosystems.

We’ll start by taking a look at the risk that climate change poses to our freshwater insects with Craig Macadam (Conservation Director at Buglife). Craig will present over a decade of research on the montane Upland Summer Mayfly and what mitigation measures can be used to minimise the impacts on their populations.

Freshwaters and forests might seem like definitively separate habitats, but they are in fact tightly interconnected by insects. Liam Nash will delve into how freshwater insects (such as mayflies, dragonflies and mosquitoes) develop in water but emerge onto land as winged adults, with a powerful impact on the surrounding landscape. Some feed birds, bats, lizards and spiders, others transfer microplastics and heavy metals out of rivers and others form swarms so large they are picked up by weather satellites.

Dragonflies and damselflies make up the insect order Odonata and are the focus of the National Dragonfly Recording Scheme. The scheme has accumulated over a million verified species occurrence records, some dating back as far back as the 19th century. Eleanor Colver will provide an overview of the National Dragonfly Recording Scheme, how it influences dragonfly conservation and how you can get involved.

The Freshwater Pearl Mussel is a fascinating species and a powerful ecosystem engineer in the UK's rivers and streams. Many of the UK's populations are in freefall with the youngest individuals in the wild being over 70 years old! Time is running out for this species. Louise Lavictoire talk will explore what the Freshwater Biological Association and partners are doing to bring this species back from the brink of extinction.
