Warming temperatures could expose more than 1.3 billion new people to Zika virus risk by 2050
In the aftermath of the 2015 pandemic of Zika virus (ZIKV), concerns over links between climate change and emerging arboviruses have become more pressing. Given the potential that much of the world might remain at risk ...
The Role of Vector Trait Variation in Vector-Borne Disease Dynamics
Many important endemic and emerging diseases are transmitted by vectors that are biting arthropods. The functional traits of vectors can affect pathogen transmission rates directly and also through their effect on vector ...
Transmission of West Nile and five other temperate mosquito-borne viruses peaks at temperatures between 23 degrees C and 26 degrees C
The temperature-dependence of many important mosquito-borne diseases has never been quantified. These relationships are critical for understanding current distributions and predicting future shifts from climate change. We ...
Predicting temperature-dependent transmission suitability of bluetongue virus in livestock
The transmission of vector-borne diseases is governed by complex factors including pathogen characteristics, vector–host interactions, and environmental conditions. Temperature is a major driver for many vector-borne ...
