1781. New Polymorphic Microsatellites in Glossina pallidipes (Diptera: Glossinidae) and Their Cross-Amplification in Other Tsetse Fly Taxa Full Text available with Trip Pro

New Polymorphic Microsatellites in Glossina pallidipes (Diptera: Glossinidae) and Their Cross-Amplification in Other Tsetse Fly Taxa We report the development and characterization of three new microsatellite markers in the tsetse fly, Glossina pallidipes (Diptera: Glossinidae). Fifty-eight alleles were scored in 192 individuals representing six natural populations. Allelic diversity ranged from 9 to 28 alleles per locus (mean 19.3 +/- 5.5). Averaged across loci, observed heterozygosity

1782. Daily oviposition patterns of the African malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae Giles (Diptera: Culicidae) on different types of aqueous substrates Full Text available with Trip Pro

Daily oviposition patterns of the African malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae Giles (Diptera: Culicidae) on different types of aqueous substrates BACKGROUND: Anopheles gambiae Giles is the most important vector of human malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. Knowledge of the factors that influence its daily oviposition pattern is crucial if field interventions targeting gravid females are to be successful. This laboratory study investigated the effect of oviposition substrate and time of blood feeding

1783. EFFECTS OF ELEVATED ATMOSPHERIC CO2 ON WATER CHEMISTRY AND MOSQUITO (DIPTERA: CULICIDAE) GROWTH UNDER COMPETITIVE CONDITIONS IN CONTAINER HABITATS Full Text available with Trip Pro

EFFECTS OF ELEVATED ATMOSPHERIC CO2 ON WATER CHEMISTRY AND MOSQUITO (DIPTERA: CULICIDAE) GROWTH UNDER COMPETITIVE CONDITIONS IN CONTAINER HABITATS We investigated the direct and indirect effects of elevated atmospheric CO(2) on freshwater container habitats and their larval mosquito occupants. We predicted that a doubling of atmospheric CO(2) would (1) alter the chemical properties of water in this system, (2) slow degradation of leaf litter, and (3) decrease larval growth of Aedes albopictus

1789. The diel oviposition periodicity of Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae) in the laboratory: substrate-movement effect. (Abstract)

The diel oviposition periodicity of Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae) in the laboratory: substrate-movement effect. The diel oviposition periodicity of females of the LSHTM strain of Aedes aegypti was studied, under laboratory conditions, using one female/cage and monitoring, by changing the substrate, every 1, 2, 4 or 24 h. The individual females monitored at hourly intervals showed peak oviposition at 18.00-19.00 hours (a period when 44% of the eggs observed were laid) whereas

1790. Limited interdecadal variation in mosquito (Diptera: culicidae) and avian host competence for Western equine encephalomyelitis virus (togaviridae: alphavirus). (Abstract)

Limited interdecadal variation in mosquito (Diptera: culicidae) and avian host competence for Western equine encephalomyelitis virus (togaviridae: alphavirus). Historically, western equine encephalomyelitis virus (WEEV) caused large equine and human epidemics in the Americas from Canada into Argentina. Despite recent enhanced surveillance for West Nile virus, there have been few reports of equine or human cases and little documented enzootic activity of WEEV. During the past three years, WEEV

1793. Evaluation of mosquito densoviruses for controlling Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae): variation in efficiency due to virus strain and geographic origin of mosquitoes. (Abstract)

Evaluation of mosquito densoviruses for controlling Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae): variation in efficiency due to virus strain and geographic origin of mosquitoes. Four mosquito densovirus strains were assayed for mortality and infectivity against Aedes aegypti larvae from different geographic regions.

Mark-release-recapture experiments with Anopheles saperoi (Diptera: Culicidae) in the Yona Forest, northern Okinawa, Japan. Six mark-release-recapture experiments with Anopheles saperoi Bohart and Ingram were performed in the Yona Forest, northern Okinawa, Japan from June 1998 - November 1999, in order to estimate the gonotrophic cycle, survival, spatial distribution, flight range, and population size of An. saperoi. Adults and immature An. saperoi were collected from the Yona Forest area

1797. Discrimination of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) laboratory lines based on wing geometry. (Abstract)

Discrimination of Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae) laboratory lines based on wing geometry. Recent techniques of geometric morphometrics were applied to the study of four Thailand laboratory lines of the dengue vector Aedes aegypti. These lines differed by their geographic origin and the number of generations spent in the laboratory. Using a phase contrast microscope, a set of sixteen landmarks of the wings could be identified. A subsequent Procrustean superposition analysis produced

1798. Effect of microwave irradiation on the blow fly Chrysomya megacephala (F.) (Diptera: Calliphoridae). (Abstract)

Effect of microwave irradiation on the blow fly Chrysomya megacephala (F.) (Diptera: Calliphoridae). Chrysomya megacephala (F) is a blow fly species of medical importance, being pestiferous and a mechanical carrier of various microorganisms to human food. Various strategies to reduce the fly population in endemic areas are needed. We investigated the effects of microwaves at 2,450 MHz, with third-instar exposure times of 7, 10, 15, 30 and 60 seconds on the larvae. Survival of the larvae

1800. Microsatellite DNA polymorphism and heterozygosity in the malaria vector mosquito Anopheles funestus (Diptera: Culicidae) in east and southern Africa. (Abstract)

Microsatellite DNA polymorphism and heterozygosity in the malaria vector mosquito Anopheles funestus (Diptera: Culicidae) in east and southern Africa. There has been an increase in malaria cases in southern African countries in recent years due to the presence of populations of Anopheles funestus that are resistant to the pyrethroid class of insecticides. Since A. funestus is one of the major African malaria vectors, knowledge of its genetic structure will benefit control strategies
