Andriamifidy, RF; Tjaden, N; Beierkuhnlein, C; Thomas, S M: Do we know how 1 mosquito disease vectors will respond to climate change?, Emerging Topics in Life Sciences, 3(2), 115-132 (2019), doi:10.1042/ETLS20180125
Abstract:
Mosquito-borne diseases are on the rise globally. Besides invasion processes and the increasing connectivity between distant regions through the trade of goods and human mobility, climate change is seen as an important driver for changing the likelihood of occurrence of vectors and diseases, respectively. Ectothermic insects respond directly to thermal conditions and thus we can expect them to follow climatic trends. However, a variety of species and different stages in their life cycles need to be considered. Here, we review the current literature in this field and disentangle the state of knowledge and the challenges and open questions for future research. The integration of diurnal temperature ranges in prospective experimental studies will strongly improve the knowledge on mosquitoes’ ecology and mosquito‐borne disease transmission for temperate regions in particular. In addition, invasive mosquitoes are known to rapidly adapt to the climatic conditions, but the underlying processes are not yet fully understood.
