Abstract: Aquatic insects are very versatile biotic components of water bodies in the lithosphere. They play important role in monitoring water pollution. Unfortunately, very little attention has been given to these creatures in understanding their vital role related to the dynamics of water bodies. In general, these are helpful in management of health and water quality through their qualitative and quantitative existence in terms of species richness and abundance which are the integral components of species diversity. In other words species diversity of these aquatic insects has been found to be directly
related with the health and hygiene of water bodies. In the present paper, the results of statistical computation of species richness and abundance have been inferentially discussed by presence absence (+,-) checkerboard of eight aquatic insects with eleven physic-chemical of the perennial water body called Hatma pond situated behind Ranchi College Campus Building presently known as Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee University, Morabadi, Ranchi, Jharkhand (India).
