Ecological prerequisites for the distribution of the benthic fauna in the Urukh River basin (Northern Slopes of the Central Caucasus)

  • L. A. Khazeeva


The environmental conditions are described for the unexplored upper course of the Urukh River and the water bodies (rivers, streams, and lakes) typical of its basin. A list of benthic amphibiotic insects of four orders under study is given. The distribution of the fauna is analyzed as a function of the ecological parameters of the water bodies of the Urukh River basin.
