Abstract:

Analysis was made of variations in density, biomass and species structure of coprophagous beetles over the course of two seasons (May-September in 1970 and 1971). A total of 16 species of beetles of the Scarabaeidae family were found both in sheep excrement and in the 10-centimetre layer of soil beneath the excrement. The imagines of Scarabaeidae make their appearance in one-day old excrement (after 1 day's exposure of sheep dung on the pasture), and the larval forms slightly later. It was calculated that during a season the imagines of scarabs carry from 12-33 g d. wt. of sheep excrement per 1m2 of pasture into the soil.
