Abstract: Community structure parameters (number of individuals, number of species, Margalef's richness index, Shannon-Weawer's index, eveness and Berger-Parker' dominance index) in spiders collected by pitfall traps were investigated in dolomitic grasses in the Buda Hills from April to October in 1988. Habitat and seasonal distribution of guilds defined on the basis of the way of prasy catching were also studied. The largest guild (wandering hunters) could be subdivided into two further guilds according to the part of the day (diurnal and nocturnal hunters). The activities of the guilds were different in each type of grasslands; diurnal hunters mainly occured in open, or artifially open grasslands, while nocturnal hunters prefered the closed one.
