A one-day workshop with land snail expert Robert Cameron where participants will learn how to identify different species by examining their shells.

There are around 100 different species of land snails (gastropod molluscs) in Britain, most of which can be identified by their shells.

This workshop will cover:
Learning how to use the key (Cameron, 2008) to identify shells specimens.
Learning about other resources, including those online.
Getting to know the “difficult” groups of species.
Help with identification of your own specimens (do bring any).

Our tutor: Robert Cameron has worked on land snails for more than 50 years. He is the author of keys to snails, and of the New Naturalist Slugs and Snails (2016) that deals with their biology.
