Abstract
The bloods of one red squirrel, seven migratory birds, three non-migratory birds, nine deer mice and nine snowshoe hare were shown to contain antibodies which reacted with St. Louis encephalitis virus. The bloods of eight snowshoe hare from Yellowknife, N.W.T., 17 sentinel rabbits from Hay River, N.W.T. and nine rabits from Inuvik, N.W.T. showed neutralizing antibodies against California encephalitis virus. Of 431 paired sera collected from Canadian forces personnel engaged in northern operations, none showed seroconversion for any of a group of selected bacteria and viruses.
