The following species of ixodid ticks were found on the shores of Lake Issyk-Kul, on the adjoining plain, and on the slopes of the mountain ridges - Kunghei-Alatau and Terskei-Alatau, skirting the lake to the north and south respectively Ixodes persulcatus P. Sch., I. redikorzevi Ol., I. kazakstani 01. and Sor., I. stromi Fil. I. crenulatus Koch, Haemaphysalis warburtoni Nutt., Haemaphysalis punctata Can. and Fanz., Haemaphysalis sulcata Can. and Fanz., Haemaphysalis caucasica Ol., Rhipicephalus pumilio P. Sch., and Hyalomma plumbeum Panz. Seven of these species H. plumbeum, Rh. pumilio, Haemaphysalis sulcata, Haemaphysalis caucasica, Haemaphysalis punctata, I. redikorzevi, and I. kazakstani occur on the plain stretching from the lake to the foothills and in the foothills 1609 - 2000 meters above sea level, desert-steppe vertical zone. Five species are characteristic of the medium altitude 2000 - 3000 meters above sea level, forest-meadow-steppe vertical zone. These are I. persulcatus, I. stromi, I. crenulatus, Haem. warburtoni and Haem. punctata. Only one species, Haem. warburtoni, was found to occur at high altitude 300 - 3500 meters above sea level, in the vertical zone of subalpine and alpine meadows and juniper woods. Author
