Abstract

On the two investigation stations in the spring area of the river Ruda physico-chemical water parameters (temperature, dissolved oxygen concentration, oxygen saturation, pH, conductivity, alkalinity) were measured and samples of macroinvertebrates were also collected. Research period was from the August of 2004 to August of 2005. Nineteen groups of macrozoobenthos were determined. The researched stations and their lital microhabitats were mutually compered. The most abundant groups of macrozoobenthos on the both stations were Amphipoda, Gastropoda and Ephemeroptera. On the station Spring Ruda the most numerous taxon was Gastropoda, while the most numerous taxon Ephemeroptera was found on station Ruda 2. The station Spring Ruda was more abudant with macrozoobenthos. On both investigation stations the most diversity of macrozoobenthos was found on macrolital and mesolital microhabitats with seventeen groups of macrozoobentos and the least diversity of macrozoobentos was found on microlital and alkal microhabitats with fourteen groups of macrozoobenthos. On microlital and alkal microhabitats group Plecoptera shown relative numerous of species.
