Abstract

Differential white blood cell counts were done on high altitude Microtus montanus nanus. The counts were statistically compared to the differential white blood cell counts of three other samples of Microtus. one of similar altitude and two of lower altitude. Statistically significant differences existed between the samples. Discussion of altitudinal, hormonal, parasitic, and environmental influences on hematological parameters is included.
