Summary: Arrangement, structure and seasonal dynamics of the
population of some invertebrates were observed. Interactions between the
intersticial underground waters and the surface waters were researched.
Biological and ecological characteristic of some species, and the effects
of anoxia on the community structure and mortality of benthos were
analyzed. Researches were preformed in a lab and on the field.
Keywords: aquatic ecosystems, metabolism of aquatic ecosystems, fauna, communities, macrozooplankton, macrozoobenthos, population, dynymic of populations, densitz of populations, biomass, trophication, trophic level, eutrophication, hypoxia, ecological factors, indicator species (i. taxa), oligochaetae, worms, polychaetes, non biting midges (Diptera), larvae, Chironomidae (Diptera), larvae
Research goals: The purpose of this research is an acquaintance with
the composition and ecological specifications of the fauna, their
communities and the life conditions in the stagnant and running waters and
the sea. The research will spread the knowledge of trophic levels in the
communities, and will be useful in various branches of economy and for
protection and preservation of natural environment. This research will help
us to understand seasonal dynamics of these communities, and metabolism of
the ecosystem in various enviromental conditions. It will also help us tu
find out more about reproductive activities, ecology, biogeography, of some
species, especially autochthonous, relict and dominant species. Other information about the project.
