A possible model for speciation by cytoplasmic isolation in the Culex pipiens complex.
  • H. Laven
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Bulletin of the World Health Organization
  • 1967
Evidence so far available indicates that in the Culex pipiens complex there exists a genetic system with unique properties not comparable with those of the chromosomal gene system and probablyExpand

In medical entomology the Culicidae are in a dominant position because the carriers of the most frequent and feared tropical diseases (malaria, yellow fever, etc.) belong to this group. In accordanceExpand

Genetic control of insects of public health importance.
During recent years many advances have been made in the development of insect control by genetic manipulation. These methods include the sterile-male technique, now well known, which depends onExpand

Eradication of Culex pipiens fatigans through Cytoplasmic Incompatibility

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Nature
  • 1 October 1967
Culex pipiens fatigans is the chief vector of filariasis in south-east Asia. Urbanization has often caused the numbers of this mosquito—and with it the danger of filariasis infection—to increaseExpand

Meiosis in translocation heterozygotes in the mosquito Culex pipiens
Adult Culex pipiens males irradiated with both X-rays and neutrons were crossed to untreated females and F1-egg rafts were checked for dominant lethality. F1-progenies were outcrossed with normalExpand

Eradicating Mosquitoes using Translocations

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Nature
  • 8 March 1969
CHROMOSOMAL translocations have been suggested1,2 as useful mechanisms for genetic control: translocation heterozygotes produce fewer offspring because some of their gametes do not receive a fullExpand

Cytoplasmic Inheritance in Culex
FROM an analysis of non-reciprocal fertility in Aëdes scutellaris, Smith-White and Woodhill1 drew the conclusion that this phenomenon must be due either to anomalous meiosis in the course ofExpand

Eradicating Mosquitoes using Translocations: a First Field Experiment
THEORETICAL considerations have led to the assumption that chromosomal translocations with ensuing semisterility could be used to control pests1–3. Inversions could have the same effect in animalsExpand
