Abstract : Since July 1965, 250 rodents were collected in 4 areas located in the middle of Turkey's western (Aegean) coast. Over 1000 ecto-parasites were removed from these rodents. Some are known to be potential disease vectors. This report presents a preliminary identification of the rodents and parasites and describes some of the ecological parameters (climate, season, vegetation) of their habitat. (Author)
