Community and Population Ecology: Interactions Within and Between Species
The interaction between various species of mosquitoes and with other organisms can be critical in determining the distribution, abundance, behavior and physiology of these important pathogen vectors. While we focus on interactions in the larval stage, we are also interested in adult mosquito interactions with hosts and predators.
