Main Article Content
The results of visual field surveys of the composition of indicator insect species and their abundance, expressed in points, for natural and anthropogenic transformed territories of southern Kazakhstan are presented. The information content of various indices of the species diversity of insects was found at a five-point estimate of abundance. For the studied territories, the most informative indicators on the range of variability were the number of registered species, as well as the polydominance index and the index of Margalef. Under standard visual accounting conditions used, a linear dependence of the type y = 2.8x was established between the number of all marked indicator species, as well as the number of species from individual orders (x) and their numbers in points (y). The data obtained suggest that the diversity of indicator insect species may be the simple and informative regional indicator of the ecological status of individual territories.
