  • These compete with the resistant parasites for red cells and increase the possibility of outbreeding of multigenic-resistance mechanisms or competition in the feeding anopheline mosquito.

    Behe Responds

  • In Sri Lanka, for example, the clearing of tropical forest for agriculture initially reduced the habitat for forest-adapted anopheline mosquito vectors of malaria.

  • This proved to be an economical method of malaria control: by identifying the most important vector and the subsequent study of its biology and ecology, malaria control had been achieved without having to eliminate all anopheline species present.

    Chapter 7

  • Watson had previously found that not all the anopheline species in the area were responsible for malaria transmission and ha had also found that these mosquitoes were often restricted to a specialized breeding habitat (the same would be discovered by Jennings in Central America in 1912).

  • Furthermore, as many regions attempt to maintain their malaria-free status against imported malaria contemporary maps of anophelines that are competent vectors for malaria are important in assessing local receptivity to reintroduction has extended its activities to collate anopheline occurrence data to map the contemporary geographic distributions of the dominant mosquito vectors of human malaria.
