Estimates of cottontail (Sylvilagus auduboni) abundance were positively correlated with overall flea indices (r = 0.857) and with the predominant flea species index (Hoplopsyllus glacialis affinis) (r = 0.743). Some flea species found on these cottontails are known transmitters of plague in New Mexico.
