Medical and Veterinary Entomology, 31(1), 44–54.

By: M. Reiskind n, R. Griffin*, M. Janairo n & K. Hopperstad n

author keywords: Disease ecology; habitat edges; landscape ecology; vector-borne pathogens
MeSH headings : Animal Distribution; Animals; Biodiversity; Culicidae / physiology; Ecosystem; Forests; Grassland; North Carolina; Population Density
TL;DR: The present results suggest blood‐seeking mosquito species are faithful to certain habitats, which has consequences for patterns of vector diversity and risk for pathogen transmission, and developers of land management strategies should assess habitat at a finer scale than previously considered.
