Abstract: Faunistic and ecological investigations of ticks were carried out in 12 places of West Serbia in the period 1989 through 1990. Out of the fourteen species of the Ixodidae family occurring in Serbia, eight species of ticks were recorded in the investigated area. The investigation involved the faunistic composition, relative abundance, population dynamics, and sex ratio of ticks. Temperature, relative humidity and precipitation were also monitored in terms of their respective effects on the dynamics of tick populations. The results indicate a considerable impact on the population abundance of ticks.
