The population structure of the malaria vector Anopheles arabiensis was investigated using data from six microsatellite loci in samples from localities in Mozambique and Tanzania. Genotype frequencies were neither significantly different between houses in a village in Tanzania nor between villages within a 20-km radius in Mozambique. Thus a deme has an area greater than 20 km in radius. At five of the six loci the heterozygosity of the population from Mozambique was lower than that from… CONTINUE READING
