Dust nuisance and its potential influence on Pieris rapae and Maniola jurtina
AbstractIn this paper we focused on the usage of Lepidoptera species, namely Pieris rapae and Maniola jurtina as bioindicators of pollution in the town of Ružomberok. We chose three sample plots in the Lisková village, near the pulp factory, and four plots in the control localities Hrboltová and Vlkolínec. The samples of butterfly imagos were collected in June, July and August 2015. The statistical analyses proved there is some pollution of Rb and Mo in the Lisková village caused indirectly by the pulp factory.
