Abstract:

Investigations were carried out on the vertical distribution of mosquitoes in forest environment from the young trees layer to the layer above the canopy. Differences in the structure of mosquito fauna caught by night in light-traps were stated as compared with the fauna caught by day in this environment. The investigated forest layers differed in the total mosquito abundancy, males and females participation and the degree of preference by individual species. Aedes maculatus Meig. and Aedes excrucians Walk. Were most numerous by night in the young trees layer and below the canopy, Aedes cinereus Meig. and Aedes communts De Geer in the canopy and Culex pipiens L. above the canopy.
