Local distribution and ecology of Glossina palpalis and G. tachinoides in forest foci of West African human trypanosomiasis, with special reference to associations between peri-domestic tsetse and their hosts



Local distribution and ecology of Glossina palpalis and G. tachinoides in forest foci of West African human trypanosomiasis, with special reference to associations between peri-domestic tsetse and their hosts



Insect Science and its Application 1: 85-93



It has become increasingly noticeable that common features of many forest and forest-savanna foci of West African human trypanosomiasis are peri-domestic Glossina populations closely associated with domestic pigs. Recent evidence from various sources almost completely proves that, in at least some foci, domestic pigs play an active role as reservoirs of Trypanosoma brucei gambiense.
