Abstract

1. Latent tularemia infection was found in Rattus norvegicus, Microtus californicus, and Peromyscus maniculatus. None of their ectoparasites were infected. 2. The possibility of an aerogenic transmission of tularemia among some rodents is suggested. 3. A list of vertebrates known to be naturally infected with tularemia is included.
