It has been known for a considerable time that protozoa may be important in soil fertility. It was felt that it would be interesting and valuable to determine the protozoans present in a virgin prairie. Such a prairie is located near Crocker, Iowa. The present investigation on a virgin prairie is centered upon (1) what organisms would be present, (2) the organisms at each station and depth, and their description by drawing, and (3) correlations of the organisms at each station with other stations and depth with depth.
