On two monitoring areas of the Central Institute for Supervising and Testing in Agriculture (ÚKZÚZ) loaded with risk elements we carried out investigations of beetles of the family Carabidae (Coleoptera) in agricultural stands of winter and spring wheat. The focus of the present study is on synecological characteristics and in some extent on the impact of agricultural practise on the population and seasonal dynamics of the most important representatives of ground beetles. This paper precedes the following article aimed to contents of heavy metals in ground beetles.
