Population‐genetic evidence for two species in Anopheles minimus in Thailand
ABSTRACT. Sympatric occurrence of homozygotes for two electro‐morphs controlled by a locus for octanol dehydrogenase, and the absence of heterozygotes, at two localities, indicates two isomorphicExpand
Distribution and Diversity of Wolbachia Infections in Southeast Asian Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae)
Abstract Wolbachia are a group of intracellular inherited bacteria that infect a wide range of arthropods. They are associated with a variety of reproductive alterations in their hosts, the bestExpand
Population structure and population history of Anopheles dirus mosquitoes in Southeast Asia.
Separating the confounding effects of long-term population history from gene flow can be difficult. Here, we address the question of what inferences about gene flow can be made from mitochondrialExpand
The insecticide resistance status of malaria vectors in the Mekong region
BackgroundKnowledge on insecticide resistance in target species is a basic requirement to guide insecticide use in malaria control programmes. Malaria transmission in the Mekong region is mainlyExpand
Wolbachia Infections of Tephritid Fruit Flies: Molecular Evidence for Five Distinct Strains in a Single Host Species
Endosymbiotic bacteria of the genus Wolbachia are widespread among arthropods and can induce cytoplasmic incompatibility, thelytokous parthenogenesis, male-killing or feminization in their hosts.Expand
Phylogeography of the black fly Simulium tani (Diptera: Simuliidae) from Thailand as inferred from mtDNA sequences
Intraspecific phylogeography has been used widely as a tool to infer population history. However, little attention has been paid to Southeast Asia despite its importance in terms of biodiversity.Expand
Maternal transmission efficiency of Wolbachia superinfections in Aedes albopictus populations in Thailand.
We examined the transmission efficiency of 2 strains of Wolbachia bacteria that cause cytoplasmic incompatibility in field populations of Aedes albopictus by polymerase chain reaction assay. We foundExpand
Identification of five species of the Anopheles dirus complex from Thailand, using allele‐specific polymerase chain reaction
The Anopheles dirus complex of mosquitoes contains some of the most important vectors of malaria in Southeast Asia. To distinguish five species of the complex that occur in Thailand, a method usingExpand
Closely Related Wolbachia Strains within the Pumpkin Arthropod Community and the Potential for Horizontal Transmission via the Plant
Phylogenetic studies have implicated frequent horizontal transmission of Wolbachia among arthropod host lineages. However, the ecological routes for such lateral transfer are poorly known. WeExpand
Geographic distribution and biting behaviour of four species of the Anopheles dirus complex (Diptera: Culicidae) in Thailand.
A cytogenetic analysis of the species status of members of the Anopheles dirus group, from natural populations, over a six-year period has produced biogeographic and behavioural data which areExpand
