Use of Population Indicators of Beetle (Coleoptera, Silphidae, Dermes-tidae) in Bioindicacion of the Environmental Status ‎

Pushkin Sergey Viktorovich, Tsymbal Bohdan Mykhailovych, Rybalova Olga Vladimirovna


Response of necrophagous beetles to the effects of environmental pollution, allows us to accurately determine the presence of a particular type of pollution in a natural object. However, the evaluation of this effect requires a detailed study. Material for the article was obtained using standard methods of entomological research.
