The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 58(3), 266-72. (1998-03)

This paper describes use of the global positioning system (GPS) in differential mode (DGPS) to obtain highly accurate longitudes, latitudes, and altitudes of 1,169 houses, 15 schools, 40 churches, four health care centers, 48 major mosquito breeding sites, 10 borehole wells, seven shopping areas, major roads, streams, the shore of Lake Victoria, an...

The potential for Anopheles egg survival in dry soil from larval development sites was investigated in western Kenya. A total of 230 dry soil samples collected in 1987, 1988 and 1989 yielded 126 first-instar Anopheles gambiae s.l. larvae from 2 to 5 days after flooding with water. These larvae were from dried animal hoofprints along streams (57.9%)...

Changes in vector species composition and current vector biology and behaviour will favour malaria elimination in Santa Isabel Province, Solomon Islands

Bugoro, Hugo, Iro'ofa, Charlie, Mackenzie, Donna, Apairamo, Allen, Hevalao, Watson, Corcoran, Sarah, Bobogare, A, Beebe, NW, Russell, Tanya, Chen, Cheng-Chen, Cooper, Robert
Malaria Journal 10(1). (2011)

BACKGROUND:In 2009, Santa Isabel Province in the Solomon Islands embarked on a malaria elimination programme. However, very little is known in the Province about the anopheline fauna, which species are vectors, their bionomics and how they may respond to intensified intervention measures. The purpose of this study was to provide baseline data on th...

Daily temperature profiles in and around Western Kenyan larval habitats of Anopheles gambiae as related to egg mortality

Huang, J, Walker, ED, Vulule, J, Miller, JR
Malaria Journal 5. (2006)

BACKGROUND: Anopheles gambiae eggs are more frequently found on soil around puddle habitats of the larvae, than on the water surface itself in Western Kenya. Thus, eggs can experience temperatures more wide-ranging and lethal than those experienced by larvae or pupae confined within puddles. METHODS: Small batches of eggs from house-collected An. g...
