The global compendium of Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus occurrence.

Kraemer et al. 2015. The global compendium of Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus occurrence. Scientific Data 2: 150035.

Abstract
Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus are the main vectors transmitting dengue and chikungunya viruses. Despite being pathogens of global public health importance, knowledge of their vectors’ global distribution remains patchy and sparse. A global geographic database of known occurrences of Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus between 1960 and 2014 was compiled. Herein we present the database, which comprises occurrence data linked to point or polygon locations, derived from peer-reviewed literature and unpublished studies including national entomological surveys and expert networks. We describe all data collection processes, as well as geo-positioning methods, database management and quality-control procedures. This is the first comprehensive global database of Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus occurrence, consisting of 19,930 and 22,137 geo-positioned occurrence records respectively. Both datasets can be used for a variety of mapping and spatial analyses of the vectors and, by inference, the diseases they transmit.

Ross, E.S. 1943. The identity of Aedes bimaculatus (Coquillett) and a new subspecies of Aedes fulvus (Wiedemann) from the United States (Diptera, Culicidae). Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington 45(6): 143-151.

This paper presents evidence to show that two distinct species of Aedes occurring in the United States are both at present identified as Coquillett’s bimaculatus. The true bimaculatus, described from Brownsville, Texas, and ranging from central Texas to El Salvador, is very distinct from the “bimaculatus” collected throughout the southeastern United States which is here described as a new subspecies of the Neotropical fulvus (Wiedemann).

Competition and resistance to starvation in larvae of container-inhabiting Aedes mosquitoes.

Barrera, R. 1996. Competition and resistance to starvation in larvae of container-inhabiting Aedes mosquitoes. Ecological Entomology. 21(2): 117-127.

Keywords:
Competition; species coexistence; starvation resistance; respiration; mosquito larvae; Aedes aegypti; Aedes albopictus; Aedes triseriatus.

Abstract.
1. Hypotheses about declining populations of container-inhabiting Aedes mosquitoes following the invasion by additional species were tested.

2. The larval competition hypothesis was studied experimentally in pure and mixed cultures of Aedes aegypti (L.), A.albopictus (Skuse) and A.triseriatus (Say). The experiments used decomposing leaf litter in the laboratory, as opposed to most previous research which used non-natural food.

Abstract
Waste tires and other types of artificial containers were sampled for immature Aedes to monitor changes in the occurrence of Aedes aegypti (L.) and Aedes albopictus (Skuse) in Florida. The initial invasion and spread of Ae. albopictus in Florida occurred in the northern part of Florida. Throughout this region, major declines in the abundance of [i]Ae.

The rise of the invasives and decline of the natives: insights revealed from adult pops of container-inhabiting Aedes mosquitoes

Rochlin, I., R. Gaugler, E. Williges, A. Farajollahi. 2012. The rise of the invasives and decline of the natives: insights revealed from adult populations of container-inhabiting Aedes mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in temperate North America. Biological Invasions

Abstract
Container-inhabiting Aedes mosquitoes are successful invaders and important arthropod-borne disease vectors worldwide. In North America, a subtropical assemblage containing introduced Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti and the native Aedes triseriatus have served as a model for investigating ecological interactions during invasions and focused on the outcomes at the larval stages.

Evaluation of seasonal feeding patterns of West Nile virus vectors in Bernalillo Co., NM: implications for disease transmission.
By Lujan et al.
J Med Entomol. 51(1): 264-268., 2014
Lujan DA, Greenberg JA, Hung AS, Dimenna MA, Hofkin BV. 2014. Evaluation of seasonal feeding patterns of West Nile virus vectors in Bernalillo county, New Mexico, United States: implications for disease transmission. J Med Entomol. 51(1): 264-268.

Abstract
Many mosquito species take bloodmeals predominantly from either birds or mammals. Other mosquito species are less host-specific and feed readily on both. Furthermore, some species tend to alter their feeding patterns over the course of the year; early in the mosquito season such species may feed primarily on a particular host type, and subsequently take an increasingly larger proportion of their bloodmeals from an alternative host type as the season progresses.
