This research provides an ecological and faunistic analysis of research results on Collembolas in the Parkent district. 40 species of collembolas have been identified in apple orchard, wheat agrocenoses and surrounding ecosystems. The study revealed the following pattern: agrocenoses of apple orchard and wheat are much poorer by collembolan species than those in natural communities. Thus, in the agrocenoses, 29 species of collembolas were noted (6980 specimens per 1 m2). In natural communities – 40 species respectively (12386 specimens per 1 m2 of soil). The most densely populated by collemboles horizon of the surface layer (10-20cm).
