The dominant Anopheles vectors of human malaria in the Americas: occurrence data, distribution maps and bionomic précis

Abstract:

Background: An increasing knowledge of the global risk of malaria shows that the nations of the Americans have the lowest levels of Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax endemicity worldwide, sustained, in part, by substantive integrated vector control. To help maintain and better target these efforts, knowledge of the contemporary distribution of each of the dominant vector species (DVS) of human malaria is needed, alongside a comprehensive understanding of the ecology and ...
