Fig. 1.

Diversity and abundance of insect fauna in lake (A) and canal (B) territories.

Fig. 2.

Arthropod richness observed according to seasons and water bodies (canal and lake) studied. Different letters above error bars represent significant differences between stations. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001; n.s, no significant difference.

Fig. 3.

Non-metric multidimensional scaling- NMDS (Bray-Curtis distance) of arthropod species composition according to different seasons and water bodies (canal and lake) studied. Stress = 0.2427

Fig. 4.

Jaccard similarity dendrogram showing the similarity in arthropod fauna between the different seasons of the two water bodies (canal and lake) studied in Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan.
