The dominant Anopheles vectors of human malaria in Africa, Europe and the Middle East: occurrence data, distribution maps and bionomic précis
The DVS of Africa, Europe and the Middle East are discussed, with the predicted geographic extent for the following DVS (or species/suspected species complex*) provided for Africa: Anopheles (Cellia) arabiensis, An. Expand
A global map of dominant malaria vectors
A global map of the dominant vector species (DVS) of malaria that makes use of predicted distribution maps for individual species or species complexes is described and highlights the spatial variability in the complexity of the vector situation. Expand
Spatial and temporal heterogeneity of Anopheles mosquitoes and Plasmodium falciparum transmission along the Kenyan coast.
The highly non-linear relationship between EIRs and prevalence indicates that the consistent pattern of high prevalence might be governed by substantial variation in transmission intensity measured by entomologic surveys. Expand
Deep sequencing reveals extensive variation in the gut microbiota of wild mosquitoes from Kenya
It is found that mosquito gut typically has a very simple gut microbiota that is dominated by a single bacterial taxon, which may be an important factor in causing differences in disease transmission rates within mosquito populations. Expand
Shifts in malaria vector species composition and transmission dynamics along the Kenyan coast over the past 20 years
Reductions in the densities of the major malaria vectors and a shift from human to animal feeding have contributed to the decreased burden of malaria along the Kenyan coast. Expand
A simulation model of African Anopheles ecology and population dynamics for the analysis of malaria transmission
A simulation model of African malaria vectors is presented, incorporating current knowledge of the mechanisms underlying Anopheles population dynamics and their relations to the environment, and allows a better understanding of the dynamics in specific local geographic environments. Expand
Developing Global Maps of the Dominant Anopheles Vectors of Human Malaria
Simon Hay and colleagues describe how the Malaria Atlas Project has collated anopheline occurrence data to map the geographic distributions of the dominant mosquito vectors of human malaria.
The role of Anopheles arabiensis and Anopheles coustani in indoor and outdoor malaria transmission in Taveta District, Kenya
This study shows that malaria transmission is occurring both indoors and outdoors, with the main vectors An. Expand
Heavy metals in mosquito larval habitats in urban Kisumu and Malindi, Kenya, and their impact.
Absence of significant correlation between the other metals and mosquito species in both cities, despite relatively high concentrations, suggest that the local larval populations, including key malaria vectors have adapted to the detected levels of these metals. Expand
Seasonal abundance, vector behavior, and malaria parasite transmission in Eritrea.
The EIR profiles indicated that malaria transmission is highly seasonal, increasing during the wet season and declining drastically during the dry season, and call for greater focus on strategies such as larval control. Expand
