Work on the relationship between the human migration and the small mammal community has been carried out in the reclaimed area of Qiantang River in August of 1987 and 1989. This paper presented some of the results of this work. 1. There were Suncus murinus, Rattus norvegicus, Mus musculus and Crocidura dracula in different residential areas. Suncus murinus was the dominant population in domestic of the small mammal community. 2. The small mammal in domestic community in the reclaimed area can be divided into 5 community types. 3. The adaptability of the domestic rodent was higher than that of the insectiv-ora in seasonal human migration during the early reclaimed period, but the number of insectivora was more than that of rodent with the increasing of human and building. 4. There was no marked correlation between the population densities of the small mammals in domestic,but there was negative correlation between the population densities of the domestic redent and that of the insectivora. The relationship between the small mammal community in domestic and field has also been discussed in this paper.
