The investigation of the some physicochemical parameters of water quality and aquatic Coleoptera diversity in Işıklı lake (Denizli)

Abstract : 

This study was conducted to determine the physicochemical parameters (pH, temperature, electrical conductivity, salinity and dissolved oxygen) of water quality at Işıklı Lake in Denizli province. Additionally, we determined the effects of these parameters on aquatic Coleoptera diversity by taking water and insect samples every month from this lake between May 2009-September 2009 and April 2010-September 2010. As a result of the study 52 aquatic Coleoptera species were identified in lakes. The study also showed that the monthly fluctuations in the physicochemical parameters and the differences in the mean values are considered to be effective in the distributions of aquatic Coleoptera
