phylogeny of nearctic members of the anopheles maculipennis species group derived from the d2 variable region of 28s ribosomal rna.phylogenetic affinities among taxa associated with the nearctic component of the anopheles maculipennis species group (subgenus anopheles) were inferred from sequence divergence in the d2 variable region of 28s ribosomal rna. the base composition of this region had a marked gc bias which ranged from 59.9% in anopheles walkeri to 65.1% in anopheles punctipennis e. although over two-thirds of the base positions in the d2 region were double-stranded (stem), substitution frequencies at single-strand ...19968899722
arboviruses in north dakota, investigate arbovirus transmission in north dakota, we collected and screened mosquitoes for viral infection by vero cell culture assay. seven viruses were isolated from 13 mosquito species. spatial and temporal distributions of the important vectors of west nile virus (wnv), cache valley virus, jamestown canyon virus (jcv), and trivittatus virus are reported. snowshoe hare virus, potosi virus, and western equine encephalomyelitis virus were also isolated. the risks of culex tarsalis and aede ...201425487728

comparative studies on the stenogamous and eurygamous behavior of eight anopheles species of the hyrcanus group (diptera: culicidae) in thailand.establishment of laboratory colony is essential for mosquito-borne-disease research. mating behavior of stenogamous anopheles peditaeniatus and seven eurygamous species (anopheles argyropus, anopheles crawfordi, anopheles nigerrimus, anopheles nitidus, anopheles paraliae (=an. lesteri), anopheles pursati and anopheles sinensis), were investigated and compared in this study. the self-mating success of adult mosquitoes in different size cages at two density resting surface (drs) values, 3.6 and 7. ...201627023618
comparison of blood smear, antigen detection, and nested-pcr methods for screening refugees from regions where malaria is endemic after a malaria outbreak in quebec, canada.the importation of malaria into a region where it is not endemic raises many concerns, including the timely delivery of appropriate care, safety of the blood supply, and the risk of autochthonous transmission. there is presently no consensus on the best way to screen mobile populations for malaria. between august 2000 and march 2001, 535 refugees arrived in quebec, canada, from tanzanian camps. within 4 weeks of resettlement of the first group of 224, the mcgill university centre for tropical di ...200415184454
north american wetlands and mosquito control.wetlands are valuable habitats that provide important social, economic, and ecological services such as flood control, water quality improvement, carbon sequestration, pollutant removal, and primary/secondary production export to terrestrial and aquatic food chains. there is disagreement about the need for mosquito control in wetlands and about the techniques utilized for mosquito abatement and their impacts upon wetlands ecosystems. mosquito control in wetlands is a complex issue influenced by ...201223222252
mosquito species richness, composition, and abundance along habitat-climate-elevation gradients in the northern colorado front range.we exploited elevation gradients (1,500-2,400 m) ranging from plains to montane areas along the poudre river and big thompson river in the northern colorado front range to determine how mosquito species richness, composition, and abundance change along natural habitat-climate-elevation gradients. mosquito collections in 26 sites in 2006 by using co2-baited cdc light traps yielded a total of 7,136 identifiable mosquitoes of 27 species. commonly collected species included aedes vexans (meigen) (n ...200818714885
