Low genetic diversity in Wolbachia-Infected Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae) from Brazil and Argentina.
Culex quinquefasciatus is a vector of human pathogens, including filarial nematodes and several viruses. Although its epidemiological relevance is known to vary across geographical regions, anExpand
Genetic-morphometric variation in Culex quinquefasciatus from Brazil and La Plata, Argentina.
The data suggest that Brazilian samples are morphologically and genetically distinct from the Argentinean samples and also indicated a morphological distinction between northern and southern populations of Brazilian Cx. Expand
Brazilian mosquito (Diptera: Culicidae) fauna: I. Anopheles species from Porto Velho, Rondônia state, western Amazon, Brazil.
The purpose of this study was to diagnose the occurrence of anopheline species from collections in three locations along an electric-power transmission line to discuss Culicidae systematics, fauna distribution, and aspects of malaria in altered habitats of the western Amazon. Expand
Diversity of Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in the Caatinga Biome, Brazil, from the Widespread to the Endemic
Considering the mosquito species richness and endemicity, the hypothesis that the Caatinga harbor poor biodiversity is rejected and the spatial variation observed is of particular importance and should be taken into account for the knowledge of Caatesa biodiversity. Expand
