The prevalences of Tunga penetrans Linn. within the five townships of Granville, Fullerton, Icacos, Coromandel and Cedros in south-western Trinidad, West Indies, as determined by physical examinationExpand
Review: Improving our knowledge of male mosquito biology in relation to genetic control programmes.
The enormous burden placed on populations worldwide by mosquito-borne diseases, most notably malaria and dengue, is currently being tackled by the use of insecticides sprayed in residences or appliedExpand
Effects of different temperature regimens on the development of Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae) mosquitoes.
This study was conducted to determine the effects of increased water temperatures on the development of Aedes aegypti immatures under laboratory conditions in Trinidad, West Indies using temperatureExpand
Microsatellite isolation and linkage group identification in the yellow fever mosquito Aedes aegypti.
Microsatellites have proved to be very useful as genetic markers, as they seem to be ubiquitous and randomly distributed throughout most eukaryote genomes. However, our laboratories and others haveExpand
Epidemiology of human leptospirosis in Trinidad and Tobago, 1996-2007: a retrospective study.
A retrospective study to describe the epidemiology of human leptospirosis in Trinidad and Tobago during 1996-2007 was conducted. All confirmed cases of leptospirosis was analyzed according to age,Expand
Community participation in dengue prevention and control: a survey of knowledge, attitudes, and practice in Trinidad and Tobago.
The priorities of public health planners are often at variance with the community's own environmental sanitation priorities and perspectives. Public opinion about individual, collective, andExpand
Global genetic diversity of Aedes aegypti
Mosquitoes, especially Aedes aegypti, are becoming important models for studying invasion biology. We characterized genetic variation at 12 microsatellite loci in 79 populations of Ae. aegypti fromExpand
Natural skip oviposition of the mosquito Aedes aegypti indicated by codominant genetic markers
Abstract.  This study examines the use of codominant restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) markers to estimate the number of sibling families found within and among oviposition sites usedExpand
Population genetics of the yellow fever mosquito in Trinidad: comparisons of amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) markers
Recent development of DNA markers provides powerful tools for population genetic analyses. Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers result from a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)‐basedExpand
