During the summer of 1958 a study of the amoebae of the large mammals of Jackson Hole was continued. Emphasis was placed on finding cysts of coprozoic amoebae in the soil and on culturing these in the laboratory. Previous studies revealed abundant cysts in droppings of elk, bison, moose and other mammals. Motile forms were absent. The motile stages, however, appeared in large numbers when the feces was stored under refrigerator conditions. Attempts to find amoebae in soil were negative. Project Number 86.
