  • descriptionAbstract

    Odonate nayades are aquatic insects that have important functions in the bodies of water where they inhabit.  There is scarce knowledge of the physical and chemical characteristics of their habitat.  Determining these characteristics is precisely the objective of this study.  Nayades were collected from streams located in northwestern Michoacán, Mexico.  The species found are reported together with the physical and chemical characteristics of the collection sites.   The results indicate that Lauragaster  diadema  and  Oplonaeschna armata  are the  species that are the most tolerant within the parameters  studied, and thus they are the species  that are found in greatest abundance in this area.
