Analysis of similarities between agricultural landscape structural units on the basis of flora and parasite entomofauna
Summary.

The study presents the relationships between the plants flora and the fauna of parasitic Hymenoptera of the Pimplinae subfamily (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) in agricultural landscapes of low, medium and high mosaic structure. The basis for the study was a similarity analysis of landscape structural units, such as forest edges, shrubberies, field borders and roadsides. In order to indicate similar and dissimilar structural elements of landscape a hierarchical cluster analysis was applied. A similarity was found between the flora and parasitic entomofauna of most structural units of landscape regardless of its mosaic structure. Midfield shrubberies were the only elements that showed similarity of entomofauna in all the landscape types. Only the field border in the low-mosaic landscape was the most dissimilar in terms of flora and entomofauna when compared to other structural units in all the landscape types.
