Abstract:

The food of spider, Tetragnatha montana Simon, was gathered from its webs in alder forest (Alnion glutinosae union). A high percentage of it formed mosquitoes. The influence of abundance and activity of mosquitoes in the habitat on their abundance in the food of T. montana was studied. A correlation was found between occurrence, abundance and activity of this spider and those of mosquitoes which is an evidence of adaptation of predator to this type of prey.
