Popis Dactylogyrid species (Monogenea) communities were studied in roach, Rutilus rutilus, collected from two localities in the basin of Morava river, Czech Republic, during the period from April to November 1997 and March to September 1998 to determine the effect of water temperature on abundance, species richness and diversity. Dactylogyrid species were found to co-occur on the gills of roach with up to six species found on the same host individual. Nine dactylogyrid species were identified with the abundance of each reaching a very low level. Niche size was considered to increase with species abundance even when water temperature was high. There was a strong effect of water temperature on abundance of the common dactylogyrid species (D. crucifer, D. nanus, D. rutili and D. suecicus) as well as of the rare species D. rarissimus. Temporary occurrence of rare species was found without temperature effect. Water temperature did not affect the relationship between abundance and niche size. Niche size increased with abundance, even when the water temperature was high, which suggests that negative interspecific interactions are not important within dactylogyrid communities.
