Abstract

A survey of the Chironomid fauna of Iowa waters is being made, together with a study of life histories and the ecology of the group. Methods of preparing permanent mounts of life-histories are being developed. One of the objectives is to investigate the role played by these insects as fish food. The group has received little attention in this country and is a promising field for the taxonomist, the limnologist and the physiologist. To date the author has recorded some sixty species from Iowa including several life histories hitherto undescribed.
