Abstract:
Beetles constitute a large quantity of total insect biodiversity and play a key role in trophic chains. The order coleoptera are well represented in all terrestrial habitats and are often used as indicators of environmental change because of their great habitat specificity. Life cycles of many beetle are linked to soil and ground litter and are affected by environmental changes caused by various human activities (agriculture, urbanization, etc.). The present study was conducted for a period of twelve months at different study sites at Sawanga Vithoba Lake (Malkhed Project), dist-Amravati, Maharashtra. In total 27 beetle species belonging to 07 families were found at Sawanga Vithoba Lake. Family Scarabidae is the most dominant family exploring 40% of species.
