The society for vector ecology ESOVE 22nd conference
The European Society for Vector Ecology (ESOVE) is a professional organization formed in 1968 committed to solving many complex problems encountered in the field of vector biology and control – among these are the suppression of disease vectors through integration of control elements, such as environmental management, biological control and public education. ESOVE organizes one European conference every year, which is an internationally recognized and prestigious conference.
Aedes koreicus, a vector on the rise: Pan-European genetic patterns, mitochondrial and draft genome sequencing
A new publication came out concerning the exotic Aedes koreicus mosquito, a recent invader on the European continent that was introduced to several new places since its first detection in 2008. Compared to other exotic Aedes mosquitoes with public health significance that invaded Europe during the last decades, this species’ biology, behavior, and dispersal patterns were poorly investigated to date. ...
Anopheles maculipennis Complex in Belgium and The Netherlands (Diptera: Culicidae)
After its recent identification in Belgium using DNA-based technologies, a new member of the Anopheles maculipennis complex was also recently discovered in the Netherlands: Anopheles daciae. Because several pathogens were isolated from species of the Maculipennis complex, including malaria, it is important to be able to identify them accurately and to map their distribution for monitoring programs.
