Resistance of Aedes aegypti to organophosphates in several municipalities in the State of Rio de Janeiro and Espírito Santo, Brazil.
Exposure of larvae to a diagnostic dose of temephos showed in alterations in susceptibility in all populations, and adults from only one municipality remained susceptible to both fenitrothion and malathion. Expand
Malaria vector incrimination in three rural riverine villages in the Brazilian Amazon.
Vector incrimination studies were conducted from April 2003 to February 2005 at three riverine villages 1.5 km to 7.0 km apart, along the Matapi River, Amapa State, Brazil. A total of 113,117Expand
Resurrection of Anopheles goeldii from synonymy with Anopheles nuneztovari (Diptera, Culicidae) and a new record for Anopheles dunhami in the Brazilian Amazon.
Results of the Bayesian phylogenetic analyses performed using either COI or combined ITS2, COI and white gene sequences suggest that An. Expand
Bloodmeal Hosts of Anopheles Species (Diptera: Culicidae) in a Malaria-Endemic Area of the Brazilian Amazon
Differences in host selection patterns among villages only a few kilometers apart are demonstrated, which may be influenced by host availability and have important epidemiological consequences. Expand
Surveillance of Aedes aegypti: Comparison of House Index with Four Alternative Traps
All investigated traps performed better than the House Index in measuring the seasonal variation in mosquito abundance and should be considered as complements or alternatives to larval surveys. Expand
Systematic notes on Anopheles Meigen (Diptera: Culicidae) species in the state of Amapá, Brazil.
Identification of Anopheles nuneztovari Gabaldón and An. goeldii Rozeboom and Gabaldón based on the male genitalia traits is discussed. An. goeldii is in the synonymy of An. nuneztovari, however,Expand
Larval control of Anopheles (Nyssorhinchus) darlingi using granular formulation of Bacillus sphaericus in abandoned gold-miners excavation pools in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest.
VectoLex® CG reduced immature Anopheles darlingi infestation levels during the entire study period, and reduced adult mosquito populations during the rainy season. Expand
Seasonal abundance of anopheline mosquitoes and their association with rainfall and malaria along the Matapí River, Amapí, Brazil
How long‐term field research may connect entomological and climatological correlates with malaria incidence is shown and a strong positive correlation of An. Expand
Development of PCR-RFLP assay for the discrimination of Plasmodium species and variants of P. vivax (VK210, VK247 and P. vivax-like) in Anopheles mosquitoes.
The new PCR-RFLP assay revealed good agreement when compared with a nested PCR using artificially infected Anopheles mosquitoes, and can be useful when detection of Plasmodium species and P. vivax variants is required. Expand
Evaluation of the Larvicidal Potential of the Essential Oil Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth in the Control of Aedes aegypti
The objective of this work was to collect information on the chemical constituents that demonstrate the larvicidal activity against Aedes aegypti, as well as the antioxidant, microbiological, andExpand
