Influence of temperature on developmental parameters of the parasite/host system Edhazardia aedis (Microsporida: Amblyosporidae) and Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae).

Abstract

Larvae of Aedes aegypti, transovarially infected with Edhazardia aedis, were reared between 20 and 36 degrees C to determine the influence of temperature on the development of the parasite and the infected host. Development of the parasite was evaluated based on spore yield and size. The predicted optimum temperature for maximum spore production of E. aedis… (More)
