Potential impact of global climate change on malaria risk.
The biological activity and geographic distribution of the malarial parasite and its vector are sensitive to climatic influences, especially temperature and precipitation. We have incorporatedExpand

Dengue fever epidemic potential as projected by general circulation models of global climate change.
Climate factors influence the transmission of dengue fever, the world's most widespread vector-borne virus. We examined the potential added risk posed by global climate change on dengue transmissionExpand

SENSITIVITY OF MALARIA, SCHISTOSOMIASIS AND DENGUE TO GLOBAL WARMING
Global assessment of the potential impacts of anthropogenically-induced climate change on vector-borne diseases suggests an increase in extent of the geographical areas susceptible to transmission ofExpand

Climate change and vector-borne diseases. A global modelling perspective.
Abstract GCM-based scenarios of anthropogenic global climate change are used for the assessment of potential changes in areas vulnerable to malaria and schistosomiasis transmission. The study showsExpand

Diurnal temperature fluctuations in a natural shallow water body
Abstract For many biological processes, the diurnal and annual behavior of the temperature of the water layer close to the water surface is very important. A simple one-dimensional model has beenExpand

Model Simulations To Estimate Malaria Risk Under Climate Change
The current geographic range of malaria is much smaller than its potential range. In many regions there exists a phenomena characterized as“Anophelism without malaria.“ The vectors are present butExpand

Physical description of transport processes inside an open top chamber in relation to field conditions.
The impact of ozone, nitrogen oxides and other air pollutants on plants in natural vegetations cannot be described by simple exposure-yield response relationships. Outdoor experiments in which plantsExpand
