Feeding behavior, natural food, and nutritional relationships of larval mosquitoes.
Host selection by Culex pipiens mosquitoes and West Nile virus amplification.
A mosquito blood meal analysis integrating host-feeding patterns of Cx.
Ecology and Transmission of Buruli Ulcer Disease: A Systematic Review
Traditional and non-traditional methods for indicting the roles of living agents as biologically significant reservoirs and/or vectors of pathogens are discussed, and an intellectual framework for establishing criteria for transmission is suggested.
Anopheles gambiae: historical population decline associated with regional distribution of insecticide-treated bed nets in western Nyanza Province, Kenya
A marked decline of the A. gambiae s.s. population occurred as household ownership of bed nets rose in a region of western Kenya over a 10 year period, resulting in the observed proportionate increase in A. arabiensis compared to its closely related sibling species.
Predicting the Risk of Lyme Disease: Habitat Suitability for Ixodes scapularis in the North Central United States
A risk map is constructed indicating suitable habitats within areas where I. scapularis is already established and areas of high probability the tick will become established if introduced, which has both explanatory power and predictive capability.

It appears that replacement of natural swamp vegetation with agricultural crops has led to increased temperatures, which may be responsible for elevated malaria transmission risk in cultivated areas.
Culex pipiens (Diptera: Culicidae): A Bridge Vector of West Nile Virus to Humans
Host-feeding patterns of Culex pipiens L. pipiens mosquito collected during an epidemic of WNV that was found to have bitten a human fulfill a criterion for incrimination of Cx.
Local impact of temperature and precipitation on West Nile virus infection in Culex species mosquitoes in northeast Illinois, USA
Finely grained temporal and spatial patterns of precipitation and air temperature have a consistent and significant impact on the timing and location of increased mosquito infection in the northeastern Illinois study area.
Midgut bacteria in Anopheles gambiae and An. funestus (Diptera: Culicidae) from Kenya and Mali.
Habitat-related variation in the prevalence of diverse types of bacteria in mosquitoes could influence malaria parasite development in mosquitoes and corresponding sporozoite prevalence.
