On the dynamics of two efﬁcient malaria vectors of the Afrotropical region: Anopheles gambiae s.s. and Anopheles arabiensis
(The University of Bergen, 2013-08-19)
Weather and climate are only some of the factors influencing the dynamics of malaria. With the ongoing debate on the consequences of climate change, there is a need for models which are designed to address these questions. ...
Cattle and climate in Africa: How climate variability has influenced national cattle holdings from 1961–2008
The role of cattle in developing countries is as a source of high-quality food, as draft animals, and as a source of manure and fuel. Cattle represent important contribution to household incomes, and in drought prone ...
A dynamic model of some malaria-transmitting anopheline mosquitoes of the Afrotropical region. II. Validation of species distribution and seasonal variations
(BioMed Central, 2013-02-25)
Background: The first part of this study aimed to develop a model for Anopheles gambiae s.l. with separate parametrization schemes for Anopheles gambiae s.s. and Anopheles arabiensis. The characterizations were ...
A dynamic model of some malaria-transmitting anopheline mosquitoes of the Afrotropical region. I. Model description and sensitivity analysis
(BioMed Central, 2013-01-23)
Background: Most of the current biophysical models designed to address the large-scale distribution of malaria assume that transmission of the disease is independent of the vector involved. Another common assumption in ...
