Abstract: It is shown that a connected open subset of a $ \sigma $-compact topological space is paracompact in the relative topology only if the subspace is $ \sigma $-compact. An application is made to demonstrate the existence of nonparacompact open subspaces, in the weak-star and bounded weak-star topologies, of the dual to a nonseparable Banach space. As a corollary, nonempty paracompact manifolds modeled on such a space always have open submanifolds which are not paracompact.
