      Abstract

      Insects are part of complex agricultural ecosystems. Their existence should be kept and maintained to stabilize entire environmental ecosystem. Insects play important role in the world, though they feed on plants and act as pests, but they also provide advantages as beneficial organisms. Approximately 1,000,000 of insect species have been taxonomically described than any other group of animals or plants on ecosystem. Insects are receiving increased attention in conservation assessment and research because of a growing awareness of their importance as keystone species, as indicators of patterns of species richness, and as monitors of environmental changes. Indralaya Campus of Sriwijaya University covers an area of approximately 750 hectares. Of this study, most species found were from order Homoptera (859 species, 28 % of all species found), followed by Hymenoptera (780 species, 24 %).
