Abstract

Fauna and seasonal dynamics of aquatic insects have been investigated in the wider area of Kopački Rit Nature Park over a period of two years. The investigation, carried out at biological localities, included channels as permanent habitats of water insects. Among 42 species of water insects, 14 belong to the order Heteroptera and 28 to the order Coleoptera. Fluctuation in numbers of water insects during the season has been recorded and the greatest numbers of insects were recorded during August. The most abundant are Plea minutissima and Ilyocoris cimicoides. Situated in the midst of the floodplains, Kopački Rit provides specific ecological living conditions for water insects.Tijekom dvije godine istraživani su fauna i sezonska dinamika vodenih kukaca na širem području Parka prirode Kopački rit. Istraživanje je vršeno na biološkim lokalitetima, a obuhvatilo je i kanale kao stalna staništa vodenih kukaca. Od 42 vrste vodenih kukaca 14 ih pripada redu Heteroptera a 28 redu Coleoptera. Zabilježena je fluktuacija u brojnosti vodenih kukaca tijekom sezone, a najveći broj kukaca je zabilježen tijekom kolovoza. Najbrojnije vrste su Plea minutissima i Ilyocoris cimicoides. S obzirom na svoj položaj usred poplavne ravnice, Kopački rit omogućuje specifične ekološke uvjete potrebne za život vodenih kukaca
