Özet

Six samplings were carried out during July and August 2005-2007 in order to determine the Chironomidae fauna of high-altitude lakes at the Eastern Black Sea region. All the investigated lakes are located at altitudes between 2530 and 3370 m a.s.l, except Uzungol (1100 m). Hereby, some measured environmental factors accompanied with Chironomidae fauna of 59 lakes are presented for the first time. As a result of the study, a total of 35 identified chironomid represent new records for the region.
