Data from: Drought and immunity determine the intensity of West Nile virus epidemics and climate change impacts

Sara H. Paull, Daniel E. Horton, Moetasim Ashfaq, Deeksha Rastogi, Laura D. Kramer, Noah S. Diffenbaugh & A. Marm Kilpatrick
The effect of global climate change on infectious disease remains hotly debated because multiple extrinsic and intrinsic drivers interact to influence transmission dynamics in nonlinear ways. The dominant drivers of widespread pathogens, like West Nile virus, can be challenging to identify due to regional variability in vector and host ecology, with past studies producing disparate findings. Here, we used analyses at national and state scales to examine a suite of climatic and intrinsic drivers of...

Predicting spatio-temporal population patterns of Borrelia burgdorferi, the Lyme disease pathogen

Tam Tran, Melissa A. Prusinski, Jennifer L. White, Richard C. Falco, John Kokas, Vanessa Vinci, Wayne K. Gall, Keith J. Tober, Jamie Haight, JoAnne Oliver, Lee Ann Sporn, Lisa Meehan, Elyse Banker, P. Bryon Backenson, Shane T. Jensen & Dustin Brisson
The causative bacterium of Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, expanded from an undetected human pathogen into the etiologic agent of the most common vector-borne disease in the United States over the last several decades. Systematic field collections of the tick vector reveal increases in the geographic range and population size of B. burgdorferi that coincided with increases in human Lyme disease incidence across New York State. Here we investigate the impact of environmental features on the...

Data from: Phylogeny of Anophelinae using mitochondrial protein coding genes

Peter G. Foster, Tatiane M.P. De Oliveira, Eduardo S. Bergo, Jan E. Conn, Denise C. Sant'Ana, Sandra S. Nagaki, Silvio Nihei, Carlos E. Lamas, Christian González, Caio C. Moreira & Maria-Anice M. Sallum
Malaria is a vector-borne disease that is a great burden on the poorest and most marginalized communities of the tropical and subtropical world. About 41 species of Anopheline mosquitoes can effectively spread species of Plasmodium parasites that cause human malaria. Proposing a natural classification for the subfamily Anophelinae has been a continuous effort, addressed using both morphology and DNA sequence data. Monophyly of the genus Anopheles, and phylogenetic placement of the genus Bironella, subgenera Kerteszia,...
