Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book Chironomidae Larvae of the Netherlands and Adjacent Lowlands: General Ecology and Tanypodinae. Chironomidae larvae play an important role in aquatic ecosystems and are used by water authorities in the assessment of the quality of their water bodies. The book simplifies the keys and presents all the available information about the biology and ecology of these larvae from the literature and own observations. In addition, the keys are accompanied by tables of important characters and some comments to allow the reader to check results by comparing the identified species against related species. To ensure that the keys did not become overcomplicated and difficult to use, they are limited to species living in the Netherlands and the adjacent lowlands. This first part of the book covers the subfamily Tanypodinae.

Keywords: Chironomidae larvae; Tanypodinae
