The invertebrate fauna of rivers and streams of the Southern Yamal has been studied using original specimens (122 bottom and vegetation samples). A total of 158 taxa have been recorded, many of which are new for this region. Among them, 18 types of rheophilic macrobenthic communities have been distinguished which mainly correspond to certain types of(More)
It is suggested that the eastern Novosibirsk region appeared as a margin between the Western and the Eastern Palaearctic zones in regard to the faunas of stream communities of rheophilic invertebrates. The western (European) elements of the fauna prevail in the lowland areas; but both faunas, eastern and western, combine at Salairsky Ridge. In addition,(More)
The fauna and diversity of macrozoobenthos communities in watercourses of the Khibiny tundras, the surrounding plains, and the Kandalaksha Coast of the White Sea (Murmansk oblast) are described from materials collected by the authors. A checklist of 110 recorded taxa is given, with larvae of Diptera, Trichoptera, Ephemeroptera, and Plecoptera prevailing. A(More)
Spatial distribution (SD) of White Sea intertidal soft-bottom communities was studied at scales from decimetres to dozens of kilometres on the basis of an extensive dataset (464 samples of macrofauna, 349 samples of ciliates, and 333 samples of diatoms). We used the information index of structural heterogeneity D(I) (Azovsky et al., 2000 // Mar. Biol. 136(More)
The species composition and communities of soft-bottom macrozoobenthos of the eastern Black Sea coast have been described based on an original collection of 132 quantitative and over 700 qualitative samples. More than 150 species and supraspecific taxa have been registered; 10 types of communities, each having a specific complex of dominants, have been(More)
Bogidiellidae is the most diverse and cosmopolitan family of stygobiotic amphipods, and inhabits a variety of subterranean biotopes, especially interstitial habitats. While the family is characterized by considerable sexual dimorphism, this dimorphism has adversely affected our understanding of the systematics of the group. Most species have restricted(More)
The rithral and hypocrenal (of small rapid streams) macrobenthos faunas of northern Greece, eastern Carpathians, montane Crimea, and northwestern Caucasus are comparatively analyzed based on original material. Peculiarities of the rheophile communities and faunas of each region and of the whole studied area are described. The area is provisionally divided(More)
The changes in macrobenthos community depended on changes in stream discharge (from 0.001 m3/sec to 100 m3/sec) were studied on the basis of data from 254 stations of 180 streams located in the centre of European part of Russia. While discharge of stream increases community composition changes considerably. Species diversity increases from 12 to 47 species(More)
Spatial distribution of macrobenthos of middle intertidal zone was studied in scale from centimetres to 30 kilometres along the coastline. The community structure and distribution of the 5 most abundant species (Hydrobia ulvae, Mya arenaria, Macoma baltica. Peloscolex benedeni, Arenicola marina) were considered. Spatial heterogeneity of macrobenthos,(More)
