Abstract:

Reactions of various entomofauna groups to the environmental conditions of forest-field ecotones were investigated. An increase in insect biodiversity in the ecotone zone was found. The intensity of the seasonal exchange of insects between the forest and open areas was assessed. Conditions under which the ecotone became for insects either a transition zone or an untraversable barrier were determined. Attention was directed to the special importance of ecotones for insects migrating from crop fields during intensive agrotechnical treatments (e.g. ploughing).
