In this article An. melas infestation rate for P. falciparum is compared to the rate of An. gambiae in the coastal and lagoon area of Benin where the two species are sympatric. We studied the variation of An. gambiae complex infestation rate in three zones where the two species occur in different proportions. This infestation rate is higher in areas where An. gambiae is prevalent. In a second experiment we separated An. melas and An. gambiae according to cytogenetic and biometrical analysis… CONTINUE READING
