About this book

Chironomid larvae play an important role in aquatic ecosystems and are used in the assessment of water quality. However, the species are difficult to identify and there is a lack of information about their biology.

This 2nd part of a series on Chironomidae larvae covers the most important tribes, Chironomini and Pseudochironomini, the well-known red bloodworms. They are the most important groups in stagnant water and can be very numerous, especially in polluted water.

The author has brought together a wealth of information on the biology and ecology, geared especially to water quality assessment.
