Effect of industrial pollution on fly communities



Effect of industrial pollution on fly communities



Entomologicheskoe Obozrenie 72(3): 558-569, 729



An investigation of fly communities near the non-ferrous metal industry enterprise in the Kola peninsula and aluminium-works in Leningrad province has shown a sharp drop of the Diptera Brachycera abundance to occur only in the zone of the ecosystems destruction. At high level of industrial pollution the abundance of phytophagous species increases, especially of those of the family Chloropidae (up to 17 times as compared to the sites not subjected to the pollution), and also saprophagous species. Numbers of the predatory flies (Empididae and Dolichopodidae) decrease. Change of the abundance of flies of the families Chloropidae and Empididae, of total abundance of phytophagous and predatory flies and of the ratio phytophagous/predatory species shows reliable correlation with the content of pollutants (fluorine and sulphur) in the green parts of plants and the longevity of the spruce needles. This allows to recommend the above mentioned characteristics of fly communities for indication of the industrial pollution of the natural ecosystems.
