Ecology of the biting midge Leptoconops albiventris in French Polynesia. III. Influence of abiotic factors on breeding sites. Towards ecological control?



Medical and Veterinary Entomology 7(1): 87-93



Correspondence Analysis was used to determine the significant abiotic factors influencing the ecology of the immature stages of Leptoconops albiventris (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae). The breeding places required strict environmental conditions: fine and well-sorted sand, with low conductivity and humidity. However, the microdistribution of the immature stages within a breeding site does not depend on such factors. Modifying physical parameters in the larval breeding areas might be an important component in future ecological control programs against L. albiventris populations.
