Title: Species composition and zoogeography of the invertebrate fauna at the lower reaches of the Lajta River
Year: 1992
Publication date: 1992-09-30
Volume: 7
Pages: 15-38.

Abstract: The invertebrate fauna of the lower Lajta River is discussed, based on records of several important groups of freshwater invertebrate macrofauna. The faunal composition resembles that of the Danube and is unique for the lowland tributaries of the Kisalföld plain. Throughout the lower reaches of the Lajta, an extensive, longitudinal zonation was illustrated. The former situation of the watersheds and the upper Pleistocene origin of this river is still indicated in the present-day faunal composition.
