Lourenco-de-Oliveira, "Is there an efficient trap or collection method for sampling Anopheles darlingi
and other malaria vectors that can describe the essential parameters affecting transmission dynamics as effectively as human landing catches?
At level of Americas, Anopheles darlingi
is one of the most important malaria vectors (4), occurring mainly in Amazon region and showed high degree of variability in behavioral traits and capable of maintaining a relatively high transmission of malaria even when found in low densities (5,6).
The malaria vector was Anopheles darlingi
mosquitoes, one of the most efficient neotropical vectors.
The effect of deforestation on the human-biting rate of Anopheles darlingi
, the primary vector of falciparum malaria in the Peruvian Amazon.
is the main vector in the inland regions of Brazil.

The subgenus Nyssorhynchus includes the main Neotropical vectors of malaria in the genus Anopheles, such as Anopheles darlingi
(Root, 1926) and Anopheles aquasalis (Curry, 1932).
En Colombia se encontro asociacion entre el incremento en los niveles de oxidasas de funcion mixta y esterasas no especificas y la resistencia registrada a DDT y a lambdacialotrina en una poblacion de Anopheles darlingi
Root, 1926, del Choco (Fonseca et al.
The deforestation creates favourable conditions for the mosquito Anopheles darlingi
, which transmits the malaria parasite if it draws its blood meals from infected humans.The deforested landscape, with more open spaces and partially sunlit pools of water, appears to provide ideal habitat for this mosquito," said Olson.

Their results, published in the January issue of the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, reveal that the bite rate from Peru's main malaria-spreading mosquito, Anopheles darlingi
, was nearly 300 times greater in areas cleared for logging, ranching, and other human activities than in areas with less ecological alteration.
