Malaria transmission in urban sub-Saharan Africa.
The rapid increase in the world's urban population has major implications for the epidemiology of malaria. A review of malaria transmission in sub-Saharan African cities shows the strong likelihoodExpand

Spatial distribution and habitat characterization of anopheline mosquito larvae in Western Kenya.
Studies were conducted to characterize larval habitats of anopheline mosquitoes and to analyze spatial heterogeneity of mosquito species in the Suba District of western Kenya. A total of 128 aquaticExpand

Short report: entomologic inoculation rates and Plasmodium falciparum malaria prevalence in Africa.
Epidemiologic patterns of malaria infection are governed by environmental parameters that regulate vector populations of Anopheles mosquitoes. The intensity of malaria parasite transmission isExpand

Bloodmeal identification by direct enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), tested on Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae) in Kenya.
A direct enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was developed for bloodmeal identification of seven hosts. Commercially available reagents are used; the test can be completed in only 4.5 h. BloodExpand

Spatial and temporal heterogeneity of Anopheles mosquitoes and Plasmodium falciparum transmission along the Kenyan coast.
The seasonal dynamics and spatial distributions of Anopheles mosquitoes and Plasmodium falciparum parasites were studied for one year at 30 villages in Malindi, Kilifi, and Kwale Districts along theExpand

Bacterial population dynamics in three anopheline species: the impact on Plasmodium sporogonic development.
The functional role of bacteria in the midgut of adult mosquitoes is unknown. In this study, we examined the population dynamics of midgut bacteria of laboratory reared Anopheles stephensi, An.Expand

On the Delayed Ross–Macdonald Model for Malaria Transmission
Abstract The feedback dynamics from mosquito to human and back to mosquito involve considerable time delays due to the incubation periods of the parasites. In this paper, taking explicit account ofExpand

The midgut bacterial flora of wild Aedes triseriatus, Culex pipiens, and Psorophora columbiae mosquitoes.
The midgut bacterial flora of wild-caught Aedes triseriatus, Culex pipiens, and Psorophora columbiae mosquitoes was investigated. Dissected midgut contents were examined using quantitative aerobicExpand

Shifts in malaria vector species composition and transmission dynamics along the Kenyan coast over the past 20 years
BackgroundOver the past 20 years, numerous studies have investigated the ecology and behaviour of malaria vectors and Plasmodium falciparum malaria transmission on the coast of Kenya. SubstantialExpand
