Supporting negative impacts of local fat plant (Erzurum, Turkey) on the population and variety of aquatic Coleoptera in Karasu river by physico-chemical parameters

Abstract :

Negative impacts of the local fat plant (Doyasan) (Erzurum, Turkey) on the population and variety of Aquatic Coleoptera at Karasu River were supported by the physico-chemical parameters. Aquatic Coleoptera species, sampled before and after discharge point of plant, belonging to Helophoridae, Hydrophilidae, Hydrochidae, Dytiscidae and Hydraenidae families, were identified and listed at species level. Both physical (total dissolved solids, temperature) and chemical (pH, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, hardness, organic matter, chloride, phosphate and some metal ions) parameters of two inhabited water were measured and compared
