Abstract

During the summers of 1960 and 1961, samples of material from muskrat houses in Goose Lake, Hamilton County, Iowa, were analyzed for their acarine content to obtain information on the factors influencing the composition of mite populations. Representatives of 18 different families or groups were obtained. Their ecology is discussed from the following relationships: (1) immediately available flora and composition of muskrat houses, (2) size of houses and occurrence of mites, (3) utility of houses and occurrence of mites, (4) sampling area of houses and occurrence of mites, and (5) the mite populations themselves.
