Grand Teton National Park Report
The objectives of this study are to document the effect of parasitism on vole populations and to investigate small mammals of Grand Teton National Park as potential reservoirs of human parasites. Immediate goals for this year were (1) to continue the documentation of the incidence and prevalence of parasites of these small mammals; (2) to determine the age at which Giardia infections are contracted by the Microtus host; (3) to identify ticks associated with these small mammal populations; and (4) to survey the animals for Babesia infections.
