Gene flow analysis of anopheles arabiensis (Diptera: Culicidae) populations in southern africa using microsatellite DNA markers

Mouatcho, Joel Claude
Faculty of Science MSc Thesis. (2005)

Anopheles arabiensis is considered an important vector of human malaria in the southern African region where the disease is the major cause of morbidity and mortality. Gene flow plays an important role in malaria control with the spread of insecticide resistance. The main objectives of this study were to (i) measure the genetic variability within a...

Studies on Anopheles Arabiensis and the impact of microclimatic conditions on malaria transmission in the Gezira area

El Safi, S
Doctoral thesis, University of Khartoum, Faculty of Science, 1992

Malaria transmission was studied during November, 1986 to October, 1987 at a village level in Gezira irrigated area where an effective control program was in progress for more than ten years. Each of the study villages represented different microclimatic conditions presented in Gezira. In addition one village, Geneina, south to Gezira with no ...

Systematic studies on the Anopheles funestes (Diptera: Culcidae) group in southern Africa

Koekemoer, Lizette Leonie
Faculty of Science PhD Thesis. (1999)

Members of the An. funestus group occur abundantly in malarious areas in Africa, and are difficult to identify morphologically. Identification using polytene chromosomes is limited to half gravid female mosquitoes. This study tried to establish the role of the Anopheles funestus group in malaria transmission and aimed to develop a molecular method ...

The behavior and biology of Anopheles Arabiensis in relation to epidemiology and control of malaria in Ethiopia

Ameneshewa, B
PhD Thesis. (1995)

The biology and behaviour of Anopheles arabiensis in relation to the epidemiology and control of malaria was studied in Gergedi in the Awash River Basin, central Ethiopia, for two consecutive years. Malaria in the area was mesoendemic with year-round transmission. However, transmission was much more intensive during the wet, than the dry, season. T...
