Culex coronator, a mosquito species common to the American tropics, has been recently documented from a number of temperate areas in the USA. Since 2002 specimens have been reported for the first time from Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Here we provide new collection records for Cx. coronator in east-central Alabama. In October(More)
Circadian patterns of flight activity in mosquitoes can influence pathogen transmission by regulating dispersal potential of vectors and contact rates between vectors and reservoir and/or dead-end hosts. We investigated circadian activity patterns of Culex erraticus (Dyar and Knab) at a wetland field site in central Alabama, by aspirating resting adults and(More)
By altering ecosystem structure and function, invasions by nonnative plants have the potential to alter the quantity and quality of habitat for animals. We examined effects of buffelgrass (Pennisetum ciliare), a nonnative grass that is increasing in distribution markedly throughout the southwestern United States and northern Mexico, on demographic(More)
