On the Trichoptera fauna of the Bükk Mountains, N. Hungary

Conference paper


The trichopterous larvae of two stream systems in the Bükk Mountains were sampled monthly for one year, and bi-monthly during the following year.

The quantitative and qualitative composition of species seems to be closely connected with the presence of the substratum of plant origin, moss and algae, the changing water velocity, the variety of food and the increasing temperature of the water downstream in summer.
