Abstract

The present study deals with the use of the little-known macro invertebrate Diptera in assessing the state of biotic integrity of Daloa's urban water bodies. Thus, aquatic macro invertebrates were sampled at a seasonal rate on 24 identified stations. The inventory showed 13128 macro invertebrate individuals of 208 taxa divided into 7 classes, 21 orders and 84 families. The Diptera is represented by 1987 individuals of 53 taxa from 16 families. Analysis of the Shannon index values shows that Rice Pond 1 and Gbedji Lake is the least diversified and balanced stations. The relative percentage of Diptera was recorded with values below 75%, thus reflecting two categories of stations: stations with moderate pollution and undisturbed stations.
