### Abstract

Abstract. We prove that the homotopy theory of parametrized spaces embeds fully and faithfully in the homotopy theory of simplicial presheaves, and that its essential image consists of the locally homotopically constant objects. This gives a homotopy-theoretic version of the classical identification of covering spaces with locally constant sheaves. We also prove a new version of the classical result that spaces parametrized over X are equivalent to spaces with an action of ΩX. This gives a homotopy-theoretic version of the correspondence between covering spaces and π1-sets. We then use these two equivalences to study base change functors for parametrized spaces. Contents
