Abstract

Research of Copepoda was conducted in anchialine caves of Croatia during 2003., 2004. and 2005. Samplings were made from March, 2003 until July, 2005 by Croatian natural history museum. 3 orders of Copepods were determined of which 1390 were Calanoida, 1037 Cyclopoida and 233 Harpacticoida. Biomass and average lenght of individuals were also determined on every station. It has been concluded that Calanoida were dominant, with also great number of Cyclopoida which were most dominant concerning numbers of stations where they have been found. Harpacticoida were much less abundant. Simpson and Shannon – Wiener index of biodiversity, richness of species and eveness were calculated. Shannon – Wiener shows highest value at Jama pod Orljakom (Zaton). Simpson index, eveness and richness all show highest value at Jama Grevranjača (Kornati).
