This work contains an integrated discussion of the role of olfaction in mosquito-host interactions. It discusses the practical application of this knowledge in attempting to control malaria as a problem for world health. This new work contains the first integrated discussion of the role of olfaction in mosquito-host interactions. It covers the practical applications of this knowledge in attempting to control malaria as a problem for world health. The volume begins with a general overview of mosquito life cycle styles and how odour-mediated host location fits into. Olfaction in mosquito-host interactions / [editors, Gregory R.

Chichester: Wiley. Bowen, M. F. () The sensory physiology of host-seeking behavior in mosquitoes. Annual Review of Entomology, 36, – Olfactory experience in larval predator avoidance. An important fitness-related effect is for mosquito larvae to avoid predation in small, spatially restrictive, pools [2,13], and indeed, mosquito larvae have been shown to display species-specific avoidance of chemosensory cues from predators .For example, Culex pipiens larvae can detect chemosensory cues from . – Knols, B.G.J. Book review: ‘Environmental factors and malaria transmission risk: Modelling the risk in a holoendemic area of Burkina Faso’ by Yazoume Ye, Osman Sankoh, Bocar Kouyate and Rainer Sauerborn. In addition to innate olfaction-mediated behaviors, mosquitoes rely on olfactory experience throughout their life to inform advantageous choices in many of these important behaviors. Previous reviews have addressed either the chemical ecology of mosquitoes, or olfactory-driven behaviors including host-feeding or by:
