Special Issue "Advances in Mosquito Biology to Improve Mosquito-Borne Disease Control"
A special issue of Insects (ISSN 2075-4450).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 September 2016).
Interests: arthropod-borne diseases; arboviruses; medical entomology; vector transmission; population genetics; evolutionary biology
Mosquito-borne pathogens remain a major challenge to public health and well-being throughout the world. Reducing the burden of mosquito-borne disease relies heavily on effective, efficient and environmentally proper mosquito control to reduce disease by reducing mosquito-human interactions. Greater knowledge about mosquito biology has been essential to improvements in mosquito and mosquito-borne disease control. This special issue will include articles by leading authorities in mosquito biology. Articles will focus on advances in aspects of mosquito biology that will have effects to improve mosquito and mosquito-borne disease control.
