dc.descriptionTwo papers have already been published (Thermal tolerance and development data) and a third is currently in progress and planned for submission by the end of July 2013. The fourth and potentially final manuscript is an ongoing collaborative effort.en
dc.description.abstractData collected was for two African malaria vectors, Anopheles arabiensis and Anopheles funestus. It includes information on thermal tolerance variables (CT and LT data) and information on development rate temperature relationships under constant and fluctuating temperatures. Additionally, desiccation tolerance of both species was determined under a range of temperature and humidity treatments. All experiments investigated these parameters for several adult age groups (where applicable) and for both sexes. The influence of acclimation was also investigated in critical thermal limit trials. Thermal tolerance data includes a comparison between wild and laboratory strains of both species. Data were used to construct a simple distribution map of both anophelines under various climate change scenarios, using the software CLIMEX.en
