Data from: Chromosome inversions and ecological plasticity in the main African malaria mosquitoes

Chromosome inversions have fascinated the scientific community, mainly because of their role in the rapid adaption of different taxa to changing environments. However, the ecological traits linked to chromosome inversions have been poorly studied. Here, we investigated the roles played by 23 chromosome inversions in the adaptation of the four major African malaria mosquitoes to local environments in Africa. We studied their distribution patterns by using spatially explicit modeling and characterized the ecogeographical determinants of...

Data from: Larval nutritional stress affects vector life history traits and human malaria transmission

Amélie Vantaux, Thierry Lefèvre, Anna Cohuet, Kounbobr R. Dabiré, Benjamin Roche & Olivier Roux
Exposure to stress during an insect’s larval development can have carry-over effects on many adult life history traits and affect host susceptibility to pathogens. Studies on mosquitoes have shown that the larval environment impacts on components of vectorial capacity such as vector competence and adult survival. We investigated the carry-over effects of larval nutritional stress for the first time on a natural mosquito vector-malaria parasite association: Anopheles coluzzii exposed to field isolates of Plasmodium falciparum....
