An investigation of some physicochemical parameters of water quality and aquatic Coleoptera diversity at G�lc�k Yayla Lake and �renli Lake (K�tahya, Turkey)

Abstract : 

This study was conducted to determine the physicochemical parameters (pH, temperature, electrical conductivity, salinity and dissolved oxygen) of water quality at G�lc�k Yayla and �renli Lake in K�tahya province. Additionally we determined the effects of these parameters on aquatic Coleoptera diversity by taking water and insect samples every month from these two lakes between May 2009 - September 2009 and April 2010 - September 2010. As a result of the study 40 aquatic Coleoptera species were identified in both lakes. The study also showed that the monthly fluctuations in the physicochemical parameters and the differences in the mean values are considered to be effective in the distributions of aquatic Coleoptera
