Description: Dept. of Zoology, Univ. of Debrecen, Debrecen, P.O. Box 3, 4010, Hungary. The edge effect on weevils and spiders was tested along oak forest – meadow transects using sweep-net samples at the SÍkfÖkÚt Project in Hungary. For spiders the species richness was significantly higher in the forest edge than either in the meadow or the forest interior. For weevils the species richness of the forest edge was higher than that of the meadow, but the difference was not statistically significant whereas the species richness of the forest interior was significantly lower than that of the forest edge and the meadow. The composition of the spider assemblage of the edge was more similar to the forest, while the composition of weevils in the edge was more similar to the meadow. Our results based on two invertebrate groups operating on different trophic levels suggest that there is a significant edge effect for the studied taxa resulting in higher species richness in the edge.
