Risk assessment: aedine species and their pathogens

AEDES

From 03/2012 to 03/2013

Principal Investigator: Carl Beierkuhnlein
Staff: Stephanie Thomas, Nils Tjaden, Dominik Fischer

  • Identification of suitable habitats for aedine mosquitoes by correlating species occurrences and environmental parameters - Application of regional climate models to project future conditions
  • Identification of areas where pathogen amplification is possible by mapping the temperature dependent extrinsic incubation period of the pathogen (the time that is needed after a contaminated bloodmeal to render a vector infective)
  • Combination of vector and pathogens climatic suitable areas to identify areas at risk for vector-borne diseases
