A biodiversity inventory of the woody of five families protected areas of the Charyn SNNP. The research revealed 30 species of predatory hemipterans from 5 families: Nabidae (4 species), Anthocoridae (12 species), Reduviidae (3 species), Miridae (5 species), Pentatomidae (6 species). According to trophic specialization, they are zoophages. According to the number of generations per year, they are divided into 3 groups: Monaovoltine (18 species), bivoltine (5 species), polyvoltine (6 species) and 1 species has an unknown number of generations. Among the predatory hemipterans of the Charyn SNNP, 21 species hibernate in the imago stage, 3 species - in the imago and larva stage and 6 species - in the egg stage. According to ecological features, all types aremesophila. Associated to the habitats of the Charyn SNNP the hemipterans are divided into several groups: dendrobionts (15 species), dendro-tamnobionts (2 species), dendro-tamno-hortobionts (2 species), dendro-hortobionts (9 species), tamna-hortobiont (1 species), eurybiont (1 species). 2 species are included in the Red book of the Almaty region: Armacustos and Zirconia erulea.
