Relative abundances of Culicoides imicola at 22 sites in Morocco were compared with climatic variables, altitude and the NDVI (Normalised Difference Vegetation Index, a satellite derived measure of photosynthetic activity) of the same sites. Abundances were negatively correlated with wind speed and positively correlated with the average and minimum NDVI (NDVImin). There were no significant correlations with air or soil temperatures, relative humidity, saturation deficit, rainfall, altitude or… CONTINUE READING
