Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 28)


Common reed (Phragmites communis) stands harbor a multitude of invertebrates. Studies conducted in Czechoslovakia in 1968–1975 made it possible for the first time to draw a picture of the distribution over a relatively extended territory of invertebrates which either are important as primary pests of the common reed, or merely make use of the reed stem as a hiding place, or rather form part of wetland ecosystems in which reed constitutes one of the most important plants.
