Malaria and global climate change in Argentina

Entomologia y Vectores 1(4): 123-135

Malaria and global climate change in Argentina

The authors studied the geographical distribution of malaria in Argentina and the relationships with some climatic factors, and they estimated the future distribution of Anopheles species (A. darlingi, A. pseudopunctipennis, A. albitarsis and Anopheles (Kerteszia) spp.) in relation to transmission. Some field work was performed in the northwest and northeast of the country to study the presence of different species and the ecological characteristics of the areas and breeding places.
