Host-feeding patterns of Florida mosquitoes. II. Culiseta.
TLDR
Results are in close agreement with the feeding habits reported for these mosquitoes in most other geographic areas and the interpretation of differing feeding patterns, with special reference to C. melanura and the abundance and behavior of birds, is discussed. Expand
Breeding Biology of Five Species of Herons in Coastal Florida
TLDR
The time interval between hatching of successive eggs in the clutch increased in all species except the Little Blue Heron, which showed a decrease in interval, and the reasons for varying success among the ardeids are often unexplained. Expand
Host behavior : its influence on the feeding success of mosquitoes.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that the defensive (antimosquito) behavior of certain vertebrates successfully prevents attracted mosquitoes from feeding and suggests that host behavior plays an important role in determining the blood sources of mosquitoes in nature and thereby, in the epidemiology of mosquito-borne disease. Expand
Effect of mosquito density on the interrelationship of host behavior and mosquito feeding success.
TLDR
An inverse relationship between the density of mosquitoes and the proportion that successfully obtained blood was indicated, ascribed to the increase in defensive activity displayed by the birds when exposed to increases in mosquito density. Expand
