  1. F- females, M-males- no data, Temp. G- temperature measured on the soil surface, Temp. D- temperature measured at the height of 25 cm above the ground, RH- relative humidity; *- ticks were collected simultaneously by two persons at the same time (between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.) in the separate, adjacent 20 × 20 m experimental plots.
  2. Triangle- the difference between parameter values at the soil surface and in the air (delta).
