Genetic contribution to variation in larval development time, adult size, and longevity of starved adults of Anopheles gambiae.

Abstract

The variation in mosquito life-history traits such as adult size has been studied with respect to environmental factors, but the genetic contribution to such variation has received almost no consideration. Using a full-sib design of F1s produced by wild caught Anopheles gambiae (M molecular form) females, we estimated broad-sense heritability of larval… (More)
