The ponds of Lednice are situated in the area „Lednicko-valtický areál“, which is included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
The aim of this essay was monitoring of seasonal dynamic zoobenthos development in the ponds Lednické rybníky over the years 2006–2007 and performance of qualitative and quantitative analysis of taken samples. The research was realized on ponds Nesyt, Hlohovecký, Prostřední, Mlýnský and Zámecký. Samples of macrozoobenthos were taken in monthly intervals. Qualitative studies of samples have shown 112 taxa of bentic macroinvertebrates in the localities mentioned above, 17 taxa were determined for the first time. Total number of benthic macroinvertebrates taxa known in the locality Lednické rybníky rose to 316 taxa. The values of macrozoobenthos density and biomass ranged between 22–15 667 ind . m−2 and 0.05–40.2 g . m−2, respectively.
With respect to the fact that only few researches with a focus on quality of macrozoobenthos in ponds of Lednice were realized, this research could bring supplementary information about the situation of benthic macroinvertebrates in the studied localities in new conditions of fish farming.
