New paper published in Integrative and Comparative Biology!

We are excited to share that our paper entitled "Effect of temperature on mosquito olfaction" has been published in Integrative and Comparative Biology.

Abstract: Mosquitoes use a wide range of cues to find a host to feed on, eventually leading to the transmission of pathogens. Among them, olfactory cues (e.g., host emitted odors, including CO2, and skin volatiles) play a central role in mediating host seeking behaviors. While mosquito olfaction can be impacted by many factors, such as the physiological state of the insect (e.g., age, reproductive state), the impact of environmental temperature on the olfactory system remains unknown. In this study, we quantified the behavioral responses of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, vectors of dengue, yellow fever and Zika viruses, among other pathogens, to host and plant related odors under different environmental temperatures.
