I am really excited to share our latest paper published in PNAS!! Abstract: Mosquitoes are important vectors of disease and require sources of carbohydrates for reproduction and survival. Unlike host-related behaviors of mosquitoes, comparatively less is understood about the mechanisms involved in nectar-feeding decisions, or how this sensory information is processed in the mosquito brain. Here we show that Aedes spp. mosquitoes, including Aedes aegypti, are effective pollina
Congratulations to Lauren (BS/MS student) and Ryan (BS student) for being awarded a Global Change Center Undergraduate Research Award! Lauren will focus on nectar feeding physiology in mosquitoes while Ryan will focus on pathogens mosquitoes transmit to the herpeto-fauna in Virginia. And many thanks to the Global Change Center for their support to undergraduate research!!
