This study contributes to knowledge of Anopheles species, including vectors of Plasmodium from the western Brazilian Amazon in Porto Velho, Rondônia State. The sampling area has undergone substantial environmental changes as a consequence of agricultural and hydroelectric projects, which have caused intensive deforestation and favored habitats for some mosquito species. The purpose of this study was to diagnose the occurrence of anopheline species from collections in three locations along an… Expand
SEASONAL DISTRIBUTION OF MALARIA VECTORS (DIPTERA: CULICIDAE) IN RURAL LOCALITIES OF PORTO VELHO, RONDÔNIA, BRAZILIAN AMAZON
TLDR
Anopheles darlingi was the only species found in all localities; the remaining species occurred in sites with specific characteristics. Expand
Population dynamics of the primary malaria vector Nyssorhynchus darlingi in a high transmission setting dominated by fish farming in western Amazonian Brazil
Vale do Rio Juruá in western Acre, Brazil, has reported highest malaria numbers since 2005, and is considered persistent transmission hotspot. Fish farming development was encouraged to improveExpand
Ecology and larval population dynamics of the primary malaria vector Nyssorhynchus darlingi in a high transmission setting dominated by fish farming in western Amazonian Brazil
TLDR
Seasonal analysis of immatures in urban landscapes found no significant difference in the numbers of Ny. Expand
Change in Anopheles richness and composition in response to artificial flooding during the creation of the Jirau hydroelectric dam in Porto Velho, Brazil
TLDR
The continual monitoring of these vectors during the late operational phase may be useful in order to understand how anophelines will behave in this area. Expand
Ecology of Anopheles darlingi, the Primary Malaria Vector in the Americas and Current Nongenetic Methods of Vector Control
TLDR
Because most Neotropical vectors are opportunistic, exophagic, and exophilic, the vector control mainstays of long-lasting insecticide-treated nets and indoor residual spraying are not effective alone, and integrated vector control methods will be needed to improve the probability of malaria elimination.

Diversity and spatio-temporal variation of Anopheles (Diptera: Culicidae) before and after the construction of the Jirau hydroelectric plant, state of Rondônia, Brazil
TLDR
The construction of the Jirau hydroelectric plant had little influence on the composition of anopheline species, however changes were observed in the spatio-temporal distribution of the An. Expand
Topographical distribution of anopheline mosquitoes in an area under elimination programme in the south of Iran
TLDR
It is revealed that there are many malaria vectors that are distributed in Minab County and some of them are expected to be predominant in areas with special topographic characteristics, which may help in malaria elimination in the study area. Expand
Exploring malaria vector diversity on the Amazon Frontier
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Anophelinae mosquito diversity continues to be underestimated in poorly sampled areas where frontier malaria is a major public health concern and the findings will help shape future studies of vector incrimination and transmission dynamics in these areas. Expand
Plasmodium vivax Landscape in Brazil: Scenario and Challenges
TLDR
Recent progress in malaria control has been accompanied by an increasing proportion of Plasmodium vivax, underscoring a need for a better understanding of management and control of this species and associated challenges. Expand
Monitoring of Plasmodium infection in humans and potential vectors of malaria in a newly emerged focus in southern Iran
TLDR
Despite new malaria local transmission in humans in Mamasani and Rostam districts, no infection with Plasmodium was observed in Anopheles species and application of molecular methods, such as PCR, can simplify access to the highest level of accuracy in malaria researches. Expand
