It is suggested that a proportion of the mosquito population may become gonotrophically discordant during the long dry season resulting in enhanced mosquito survival and sustained malaria transmission.
This assay will be useful for screening clade types of field-collected An. funestus specimens accurately and efficiently in malaria vector research and control studies.
These data can provide a good starting point for modelling population level consequences of temperature change associated with climate change.
Pyrethroid insecticides are critical for malaria control in Africa.
The impact of insecticide resistance on insect-borne disease programs is difficult to quantify.
