Influence ofMyriophyllum aquaticum cover onAnopheles mosquito abundance, oviposition, and larval microhabitat

Abstract

The surface cover produced by aquatic macrophytes is the primary habitat for immature stages (eggs, larvae, and pupae) ofAnopheles mosquitoes. We hypothesized that both the abundance of immatureAnopheles and the recruitment ofAnopheles (from oviposition or larval movement) is positively related to the amount of surface cover present.
