Kevin Emerson, associate professor of biology, has recently been published in Parasites and Vectors titled, “Evidence for family-level variation of phenotypic traits in response to temperature of Brazilian Nyssorhynchus darlingi.”

In this article, Emerson and colleagues show that there is variation in traits associated with malaria transmission and biome-of-origin, temperature, and family genetics.  These are important factors to be considered for future mosquito control strategies.
