The mosquito Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus (Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae) is an invasive species which has colonized Southern Europe in the last two decades. As it is a competent vector for several arboviruses, its spread is of increasing public health concern, and there is a need for appropriate monitoring tools. In this paper, we have developed a modelling(More)
The practical value of a criterion based on statistical information theory is demonstrated for the selection of optimal wavelength and bandwidth of low-cost lighting systems in plant imaging applications. Kullback–Leibler divergence is applied to the problem of spectral band reduction from hyperspectral imaging. The results are illustrated on various plant(More)
Ultra-low volume (ULV) insecticidal aerosols dispensed from vehicle-mounted cold-foggers are widely considered the method of choice for control of Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus during outbreaks of dengue and chikungunya and, more recently, Zika. Nevertheless, their effectiveness has been poorly studied, particularly in Europe. Nearly all published(More)
The current genetic data stress the importance of musculo-skeletal connections in the development of a coherent system connecting the tendons and aponeurosis muscles with the osseous parts. The observations in tomodensitometry of musculo-skeletal connections in otomandibular dysostosis make it possible qualitatively to observe the development of the muscles(More)
