Impact of rainfall on Aedes aegypti populations
Modelling the phenological effects of environmental drivers on mosquito abundance: implications for West Nile virus transmission potential in the UK
The disease model predicts that the current climate in the South of England is too cold to facilitate WNV outbreaks, however, given projected warming in the UK in coming decades it is predicted that WNV infection rates in mosquitoes will be consistent with the lower range of values observed during W NV outbreaks 2080 if virus introduction coincides with warm periods.
A Process-Based Model with Temperature, Water, and Lab-derived Data Improves Predictions of Daily Mosquito Density
A process-based mosquito population model is developed that captures life-cycle egg, larva, pupa, adult stages, and diapause for Culex pipiens and CULEx restuans mosquito populations and predicts the yearly variations in mosquito populations better than a statistical model using the same data sources.
The influence of climate and socio-ecological factors on invasive mosquito vectors in the Northeastern US: Assessing risk of local arboviral transmission
A robust predictive modeling frameworks based on empirically derived relationships of the ecology and epidemiology of mosquito-borne disease systems in the northeastern US is built, supporting further study that combine socio-ecological processes into model frameworks.
Joint spatiotemporal modelling reveals seasonally dynamic patterns of Japanese encephalitis vector abundance across India
Predicting vector abundance and seasonality, key components of mosquito-borne disease (MBD) hazard, is essential to determine hotspots of MBD risk and target interventions effectively. Japanese
Species composition of mosquitoes associated with a livestock field station
The generalized feeding pattern of the identified mosquitoes suggests the potential vector status of infectious diseases.
Interpretable machine learning approach to analyze the effects of landscape and meteorological factors on mosquito occurrences in Seoul, South Korea
Mosquitoes are the underlying cause of various public health and economic problems. In this study, patterns of mosquito occurrence were analyzed based on landscape and meteorological factors in the


Modeling the role of rainfall patterns in seasonal malaria transmission
Seasonal total precipitation is well known to affect malaria transmission because Anopheles mosquitoes depend on standing water for breeding habitat. However, the within-season temporal pattern of
Weather variability impacts on oviposition dynamics of the southern house mosquito at intermediate time scales
The results indicate that qualitative changes in oviposition habitats modify the importance of weather variables as predictors of mosquito Oviposition dynamics.
The Effect of Temperature on Life History Traits of Culex Mosquitoes
The results indicate that geographic region, as well as species and population differences, must be considered when measuring the effect of temperature on vector populations, and that increases in temperature are likely to accelerate mosquito development, but also that temperature significantly increases mortality.
Impact of climate variation on mosquito abundance in California
ABSTRACT Temporal variation in the abundance of the encephalitis virus vector mosquito, Culex tarsalis Coquillet, was linked significantly with coincident and antecedent measures of regional climate,
Weather Variability Affects Abundance of Larval Culex (Diptera: Culicidae) in Storm Water Catch Basins in Suburban Chicago
A practical, visual representation of key predictors of high larval production may be used by local mosquito abatement districts to target limited resources to treat catch basins when they are particularly likely to produce West Nile virus vectors.
The changing rainy season climatology of mid-Ghana
Daily rainfall data are examined through the temporal analysis of various definitions of variable temporal units (VTUs) consisting of combinations of various starting dates and durations over
The Role of Climatic and Density Dependent Factors in Shaping Mosquito Population Dynamics: The Case of Culex pipiens in Northwestern Italy
It is suggested that inter-seasonal differences in the mosquito dynamics are largely driven by different temporal patterns of temperature and seasonal-specific larval carrying capacities, while, high temperatures during the summer can decrease population size by increasing adult mortality.
Hydrology of malaria: Model development and application to a Sahelian village
We present a coupled hydrology and entomology model for the mechanistic simulation of local‐scale response of malaria transmission to hydrological and climatological determinants in semiarid, desert
A spatial simulation model for dengue virus infection in urban areas
A spatially-explicit, individual-based mathematical model that accounts for the spread of dengue infection as a result of human movement and mosquito dispersion has potential as a tool for understanding factors contributing to d Dengue spread as well as planning and optimizing dengUE control, including reducing the Ae.
