Research during the summer of 1961 was a continuation of a study which was started in June, 1959. The overall purpose was to investigate the relationships between stress on an animal and its parasites. This problem not only involves the internal environment of a host, which is the habitat of parasites, but also is related to population pressures and behavior. Project Number 103.
