Study of Assemblages of Ground Dwelling Arthropods in Gulbarga District, Karnataka, India

Nandini V. Belamkar, Dr. Murali Jadesh

The present study provides data of ground dwelling arthropods assemblage in agriculture fields from Hadgil Harutti village Gulbarga, Karnataka. Arthropods play an important role in organic matter decomposition, nutrient cycling, ground aeration and fertility. The study was carried out using pitfall trap during the year January 2013 to December 2013. A total 36, 652 individuals were caught. Five class of Arthropoda were found i.e Class Insect, Arachnida, Chilopoda, Diplopoda and Crustacean. In the class the most abundant order was Hymenoptera (ants) 61.489 %, followed by Collembola (springtails) 17.191 %, Coleoptera (beetles) 8.744 %, Acari (mites) 4.768 %, Araneae (spiders) 3.288 %, Orthoptera (crickets, grasshoppers) 2.581 %. The Arthropoda diversity was calculated using Shannon wiener index and Simpson diversity.
