tree hole mosquito species composition and relative abundances differ between urban and adjacent forest habitats in northwestern argentina.water-holding tree holes are main larval habitats for many pathogen vectors, especially mosquitoes (diptera: culicidae). along 3 years, the diversity and composition of mosquito species in tree holes of two neighbouring but completely different environments, a city and its adjacent forest, were compared using generalized linear mixed models, permanova, simper and species association indexes. the city area (northwest argentina) is highly relevant epidemiologically due to the presence of aedes aeg ...201728770688
flight height preference for oviposition of mosquito (diptera: culicidae) vectors of sylvatic yellow fever virus near the hydroelectric reservoir of simplício, minas gerais, this study, the oviposition behavior of mosquito species exhibiting acrodendrophilic habits was investigated. the study was conducted near the simplicio hydroelectic reservoir (shr) located on the border of the states of minas gerais and rio de janeiro, brazil. samples were collected using oviposition traps installed in forest vegetation cover between 1.70 and 4.30 m above ground level during the months of april, june, august, october, and december of 2011. haemagogus janthinomys (dyar), haem ...201323926776
[microhabitats of aedes albopictus (skuse) in the region of the paraiba valley, são paulo state, brazil].the objective of this study was the determination of extent of the spatial distribution of aedes albopictus in the paraíba river valley, state s. paulo, brazil. thus, collections of larvae and pupae mosquitoes were carried out at six sites distributed along a transection with a 10-km extension. the target was the tree-holes but artificial containers were also used in this investigation. aedes terrens and ae. albopictus were the only species of genus aedes present in the tree-holes mentioned. the ...19921307425
