Abstract

The dissertation is devoted to determination of the biodiversity and current species composition of plant-inhabiting mites of the family Phytoseiidae in the dendrological parks and botanical gardens of the Forest-Steppe of Ukraine and its comparison with the same species composition of Kaniv natural reserve. The maximum and minimum similarities of the fauna of these different local areas are identified. Some ecological characteristics of phytoseiid mites and its species composition in the dendrological parks, botanical gardens and one reservation areas are identified. The mite E. finlandicus is the base-line species both by the quantity and the occurrence in all studied areas of the Forest-Steppe of Ukraine. It was not shown any selectivity of the mite settling on the plants in the different types of vegetation neither in the natural conditions nor in the changed landscapes. For the first time earlier unknown male of the species Anthoseius (Mumaseius) victorovi Wainstein was found and described. The most reliable characters for the identification of morphologically close species of the genus Amblyseius and Typhlodromus are determined. The first case of the intrazonal invasion, successful acclimatization and new population formation of phytoseiid mites T. beglarovi, belonging to the Mediterranean fauna, is proved. It is a result of casual unforeseeable introduction of the mites with a planting stock.
