Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 17)

Abstract

The aphids collected with the quick trap method (Kauri et al, 1969; Solhøy, 1972) at the Stigstuv IBP alpine tundra dry and wet meadow sites described by Sonesson et al. (1975) comprise 8 species. The population of the wet meadow is sparse, and only material from the dry meadow is considered in the ecological discussion.
