Abstract: Let $ p:E\rightarrow B$ be a smooth fiber bundle. Given a smooth fiber preserving map $ f:E\rightarrow E$, we will show that $ f$ can be deformed by a smooth, fiber preserving homotopy to a smooth map $ g:E\rightarrow E$ such that the number of fixed points of $ g$ is equal to the fiberwise Nielsen number of $ f$.
