The results obtained during eigth years of the studies which have been carried out under the ecological monitoring in the Białowieża Primeval Forest since 1992 are discussed in this paper. The species composition, numbers and appearance period of beetles from the family Scolytidae are presented against the background of the data obtained so far in the Białowieża Forest and Poland. The qualitative and quantitative results of the catches in the managed stands are compared with those from being under strict reserve protection virgin forests. The efficiency of traps utilization is evaluated. The suitably of Scolytidae for bioindication of the degradation of forest environment is analized. One species not reported from the Białowieża Forest hitherto is presented.
