Abstract
In 2005 and 2006, the macroinvertebrate and nematode community from soft sediment areasin impounded sections of the river Elbe in the Czech Republic near Pardubice was investigated. 99 macroinvertebrate taxa, most of them belonging to the Oligochaeta and the Chironomidae, were found with total abundance ranging between 1526 and 6067 ind./m². The total number of nematode taxa was 45, their total abundance varied between 16 726 and 17 235 ind./m². Faunistic aspects, diversity, abundance and biomass are discussed and compared with the community of other impounded rivers.
