Computational and experimental insights into the chemosensory navigation of Aedes aegypti mosquito larvae

Eleanor Lutz, Tjinder Grewal & Jeffrey Riffell
Mosquitoes are prolific disease vectors that affect public health around the world. Although many studies have investigated search strategies used by host-seeking adult mosquitoes, little is known about larval search behavior. Larval behavior affects adult body size and fecundity, and thus the capacity of individual mosquitoes to find hosts and transmit disease. Understanding vector survival at all life stages is crucial for improving disease control. In this study we use experimental and computational methods to...
