Abstract:

The paper presents data referring to the

comparative structure of the benthic invertebrate

fauna of the Doamnei River, in the sector Cernat

– Dârmăneşti.

In all sampling stations, the main elements

specific to unpolluted mountain waters are

constantly present: amphipods, ephemeropterans,

plecopterans, trichopterans, simuliids, 103

chironomids, most of them being dominant

groups.

On the basis of relative abundance, the

dominancy of the invertebrate groups is

highlighted. In particular, the community

structure of the mayflies larvae (group constantly

dominant in all studied sites) is analyzed, being

presented the list of the taxa, ecological spectrum,

relative abundance, frequency and other

ecological characteristics of the mayflies fauna.

Keywords:

benthic invertebrate fauna, Doamnei River, mayflies.
