Mosquitoes captivate the attention of scientists and the public because they are the most dangerous animals on the planet, transmiting several debilitating and deadly diseases to humans, including malaria, dengue fever, lymphatic filariasis, and Zika. Underlying the danger they present to humans is a fascinating and complex biology on all levels, from molecules to ecosystems, which has been the subject of investigation for over a century. This special issue will report recent discoveries and review key subject areas in the field of mosquito biology, as well as the utilization of this biological knowledge to develop new solutions for controlling mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit.
