Abstract

This study aimed to assess the biotic state of integrity of the urban waterbodies of Daloa. The sampling was carried out seasonally using a kick net and Van Veen on twelve stations. A total of 12718 individuals of 136 taxa belonging to 14 Orders and 59 Families were collected. Among these collected individuals 1988 belong to the complex Ephemeropters, Trichopters, Coleopters distributed on 17 families and 42 taxa. The most represented are the Coleopters (27 taxa), then Ephemeropters (12 taxa) and finally Trichopters (5 taxa). The Order of the Coleopters counts 7 families, Epheméropters (6 families) and Trichopters (3 families). Any Plecopters was sampled and the ETC index calculated showed that urban hydro systems of Daloa is relatively poor quality but among them the pond at station 5 in a better state of integrity.
