PIN. We examined 65 inclusions kindly lent to us by Prof. Alexandr Rasnitsyn. All specimens belong to the Orthocladiinae – the most common subfamily of Chironomidae in amber deposits worldwide ( Zelentsov et al., 2012 ). In this series we found eight males. Seven specimens belong to previously

Biology and Ecology of the Aquatic Orthocladiinae
Chironomidae Larvae of the Netherlands and Adjacent Lowlands
Chironomids are a group of non-biting midges, the larvae of which are important in aquatic ecosystems. The subfamily Orthocladiinae is well represented in flowing water. This books contains information about their life cycle, feeding behaviour and their response to environmental factors. Chironomidae Larvae, Vol. 3: Orthocladiinae presents a wealth of information for scientific and practical purpose.
The subfamily Orthocladiinae is especially well represented in flowing water. Most of the species need a good supply of oxygen and few larvae are bottom dwellers. Many species emerge early in spring and may be scarce in summer. Other species live in stagnant and even temporary water bodies.
• information about the life cycle and feeding behaviour of the larvae and their response to environmental factors such as oxygen conditions, current velocity and saprobity
• special attention to the interrelations between these factors
• general and specific aspects of the systematics, biology and ecology the genera and species
• nomenclature and identification

An invaluable tool for aquatic ecologists and water quality management.

Biology and Ecology of the Chironomini
Chironomids are a group of non-biting midges, the larvae of which are important in aquatic ecosystems. This book is an invaluable tool for aquatic ecologists and water quality management covering the most important tribes Chironomini and Pseudochironomini. It presents a wealth of information for professionals for scientific and practical purpose.

The Chironomini larvae are the well-known red bloodworms. They are the most important group of the Chironomidae family in stagnant water and can be very numerous, especially in polluted water. Many species are detritus feeders and play a part in the decomposition of organic material. Most species live in a tube of small particles, attached to the substrate.

The author has brought together a wealth of information on the biology and ecology of this group geared especially to water quality assessment. This collected knowledge is required in the interpretation of macro-invertebrate samples. An introduction gives background information on the influence of environmental factors on chironomid larvae.

A unique focus on this ecologically important group, useful for professionals and especially important for its potential use in water quality management.
