Attempts have been made to analyze communities of spiders and mosquitoes in the alder forest (Carici elongatae·Alnetum), oak-pine forest (Pino-Qucrcetum), and in the ecotone environment. The specific composition, abundance, and distribution of spiders and mosquitoes in the three environments investigated were analyzed from spring to autumn. Differences in the structure of spider and mosquito communities of the ecotone as compared with typical environments were recorded. Seasonal periods with simultaneous highest abundance of spiders and mosquitoes in these environments were analyzed. Dominating species were singled out, and the seasonal dynamics of their abundance was analyzed. On the basis of these data species of spiders – potential predators of mosquitoes – were singled out, as well as periods of their most intensive pressure on those preys
