ABSTRACT



The purpose of the studies was to observe the occurrence of Macrosiphum rosae (L.) on roses from different utility groups: wild ones (Rosa rugosa Thunb. and Rosa multiflora Thunb.), park roses (cv. ‘Grandhotel’) and border roses (various cultivars). Observations were conducted in four different sites in the urban green area of Lublin in the years 2001-2003. Macrosiphum rosae was annually observed on the roses of each group and in each site. The first individuals appeared on the analyzed shrubs in April, and colonies were observed on the plants even in December (with favourable weather conditions). The most abundant population of M. rosae was noticed in the road site. In the other sites the aphid population was much smaller and similar. On the species of wild roses (saltsprays and multiflowered ones) the studies observed the summer disappearance of the colonies in each year of the studies, while on noble roses (especially the park rose) aphids remained on the shrubs throughout the vegetation year.

Key words: Macrosiphum rosae (L.), dynamics of number, roses, urban conditions, weather.
