Abstract: A linearly ordered set is short if it does not contain any monotonic sequence of length $ {\omega _1}$, and it is long if it contains a monotonic sequence of length $ \alpha $ for every ordinal $ \alpha < {({2^\omega })^ + }$. We prove that there exists a family $ {\mathbf{F}}$ of power $ {2^{{2^\omega }}}$ of long ordered fields of size $ {2^\omega }$ that are pairwise nonisomorphic (as fields) and such that every field $ F \in {\mathbf{F}}$ has $ {2^{{2^\omega }}}$ nonisomorphic short subdomains whose field of quotients is $ F$. The generalization of this result for higher cardinals is also discussed. This generalizes the author's result of [Ci].
