The epidemiology of the visceral leishmaniasis in the Americas is associated with both a natural and a domestic cycle. The existence of reproductively isolated populations of Lutzomyia longipalpis (Lutz & Neiva), and the scarcity of records of this species from natural habitats in areas where it has been associated with domestic habitats indicated that natural populations could be genetically distinct from domestic ones. Therefore, we compared the genetic structure and estimated the gene flow… CONTINUE READING
