A synecological characterization of the water mite communities (acari: hydrachnidia) of the Tanew River in the Nad Tanwią reserve

  title={A synecological characterization of the water mite communities (acari: hydrachnidia) of the Tanew River in the Nad Tanwią reserve},
  author={R. Stryjecki and D. Kowalczyk-Pecka},
Summary. A total of 17 water mite species were collected in the Tanew River in the Nad Tanwi�� reserve. The dominant species were Hygrobates calliger (34.4%), Lebertia pusilla (17.3%), Aturus scaber (11.3%), Atractides nodipalpis (8.7%), Sperchon setiger (6.1%) and Lebertia glabra (5.5%). The material collected contained species that are rare in Poland – Lebertia glabra and L. pusilla, and a species rarely found anywhere in Europe – Sperchon turgidus. The most species were collected in lentic… Expand

A faunistic and ecological characterization of the water mites (Acari: Hydrachnidia) of the Bukowa River (central-eastern Poland)
The water mite communities of the Bukowa River were found to be similar to those of other lowland rivers in Poland. An element specific to the Bukowa River was a much higher abundance of LebertiaExpand
Water mites (Acari, Hydrachnidia) in three forest and landscape reserves in Roztocze.
A comparison of the water mite fauna from the Nad Tanwią Reserve with the materials collected in 2001–2002 points to a significant reduction in the number of water mites species and considerable changes in the structure of synecological groups. Expand

The present study is a discussion of the interactions between different types of water bodies in the spatial arrangement of a river valley, taking into account landscape data. The HydrachnidiaExpand


Roadside temporary water pool as a habitat for water mites (Acari, Hydrachnidia)
In an anthropogenic temporary pool in Dąbrowa Tomaszowska (Central Roztocze), in 2002-2003, 274 water mite specimens belonging to 18 species were collected. A species new to the Polish fauna wasExpand
Water mites [Acari, Hydrachnidia] of the echo ponds in the Roztoczanski National Park before hydrotechnical restructuring
The differences in the fauna of the two ponds indicate that hydrotechnical restructuring involving elimination of smaller water bodies will contribute to a decrease in Hydrachnidia biodiversity. Expand
The impact of human activity on the water mite fauna (Acari, Hydrachnidia) of the ‘Lasy Janowskie’ Landscape Park (South-Eastern Poland)
The water mite fauna of transitional waters (canals) had a stagno-rheophilous character and was under a strong anthropogenic impact which, among others, resulted in a disturbance of population dynamics. Expand
Chelicerata: Acari II
The present taxonomic knowledge about these different groups of invertebrates is brought together in an overview for the Central-European fauna for the first time in limnofaunistic bibliography. Expand
Some biological and ecological data on water-mites, mainly some significant data on the life-duration
Abstract Some significant information on the life-duration of some water mites based on the studies made in Switzerland and Southern Germany is given.
