Two species of mosquito, Aedes (Ochlerotatus) impiger (Walk.) and A. (O.) nigripes (Zett.), occur at Lake Hazen, northern Ellesmere Island1. This arctic site (71° 18′ W., 81° 49′ N.), where the Canada Department of Agriculture has conducted entomological studies in 1962 and 1963, lies within 100 miles of Alert, the most northerly locality at which mosquitoes are known to exist in Canada2. Two findings concerning the mosquitoes at Lake Hazen are described here ; unless otherwise specified all… Expand
Facultative Autogeny in Arctic Mosquitoes
TLDR
Development in the mosquitoes Aedes (Ochlerotatus) impiger (Walk.) and A. (O.) nigripes (Zett.) has been studied at Hazen Camp, northern Ellesmere Island, a site only 150 miles south of the northernmost limit of land. Expand
Natural Hosts of Mosquitoes in Northern Ellesmere Island
TLDR
The reaction of the host to harassment by mosquitos appears to determine which hosts are fed on successfully whenedes impiger and A. nigripes are observed to take blood from musk-oxen, birds, and man. Expand
Maorigoeldia argyropus Walker (Diptera: Culicidae): is this another threatened endemic species?
TLDR
Some evidence is presented that M. argyropus may be slowly disappearing from many sites throughout New Zealand, and that its long-term survival could be at risk. Expand
TEMPERATURE-INDUCED INTERSEXES IN AEDES MOSQUITOES: COMPARATIVE STUDY OF SPECIES FROM MANITOBA
The larvae of 26 species of Aedes from Manitoba were reared at constant temperatures from a low of 10° or 15°C, to the upper lethal temperature. Various grades of adult intersexes occurred in 12Expand
SEASONAL STUDIES OF A POPULATION OF CULICOIDES MARMORATUS (SKUSE) (DIPTERA: CERATOPOGONIDAE) AT DECEPTION BAY, QUEENSLAND*
TLDR
A facultatively autogenous population of Culicoides marmoratus (Skuse, 1889) was abundant at Deception Bay, 40 km north of Brisbane and would be a poor vector of disease owing to its low estimated daily survival rate. Expand
SEASONAL EMERGENCE AND ACTIVITY OF MOSQUITOES (DIPTERA: CULICIDAE) IN A HIGH-ARCTIC LOCALITY
TLDR
Year-to-year differences in the numbers of adults emerging were correlated with the amount of flight, and hence reproductive activity, permitted by weather the previous year, and indeed reproductive activity despite the low temperatures and variable weather of the summer. Expand
Blood-Feeding Requirements of the Mosquito: Geographical Variation in Aedes taeniorhynchus
TLDR
In Aedes taeniorhynchus populations from mangrove swamps, most females possessed the capacity to produce eggs on a blood-free diet, but where the grassy salt marsh was the mosquito's principal habitat,most females lacked this capacity. Expand
Autogeny in Culex salinarius from Texas, Florida and New Jersey.
TLDR
Autogeny was studied in Culex salinarius from College Station, Texas; Vero Beach, Florida; and Edison and Dennisville, New Jersey and females denied a bloodmeal appeared to undergo facultative autogeny at colder temperatures. Expand
Autogeny in Culex salinarius from Texas, Florida and New Jersey.
TLDR
Autogeny was studied in Culex salinarius from College Station, Texas; Vero Beach, Florida; and Edison and Dennisville, New Jersey and females denied a bloodmeal appeared to undergo facultative autogeny at colder temperatures. Expand
Mosquito autogeny in Aedes caspius (Diptera: Culicidae): alterations of larval nourishments reservation upon bacterial infection
TLDR
The present study recorded mosquito autogeny for the first time amongst Aedes caspius species in the Eastern region of Saudi Arabia and results may indicate that bacterial infection is a health stress that significantly reduced nourishments reservation, which may interrupt the success of adult autogenY.
