The monograph is devoted arthropod fauna of the Aral Sea region and the laws of formation entomocomplexes on the exposing bottom of the Aral Sea. It is shown that arthropod fauna of the Northern Aral Sea region significantly differs from the faunas of the Caspian region and Southern Turan, so the Northern Aral Sea region can be regarded as a biogeographical region consisting of Aral subprovince of Northern Turan. Formation of entomocomplexes on the former bottom of the Aral Sea is a long and gradual process correlated with the formation of phytocenoses. By the example of arthropod fauna were able to show that postaqual territories of the Aral Sea region can form by stages, for 30-35 years, ecosystems close to zonal subclimax ecosystems. The book is intended for entomologists, hydrobiologists, botanists and students of respective specialties.
