Hybridisation studies on sibling species of the Anopheles gambiae Giles complex (Diptera: Culicidae) in the laboratory



Hybridisation studies on sibling species of the Anopheles gambiae Giles complex (Diptera: Culicidae) in the laboratory



Bulletin of Entomological Research, 703: 391-398



Assortative mating amongst species of the complex of Anopheles gambiae Giles that occur sympatrically in West Africa was investigated in laboratory mating-choice experiments using dieldrin resistance and hybrid sterility as genetic markers. In competition experiments involving A. gambiae and A. arabiensis Patt., mating was found to be assortative. No effect of cage volume was observed on the operation of the specific mate-recognition system.
