In this section I present the results of my research in Kobbeå. Click on one of the invertebrate groups to the left to get the text presented.

The section contains faunistic notes an all the approximately 150 taxa found in Kobbeå stream system. Furthermore a number of species/taxa found in other streams on Bornholm is treated.

Unfortunately for for the English readers: The section is not yet tranlated from Danish.
