Using a Dynamic Hydrology Model To Predict Mosquito Abundances in Flood and Swamp Water
|Mosquito||Probability of a mass emergence|
|Aedes vexans||p(128 Ae. vexans) = (1+exp(4.701 - 0.00804≥ILW))-1|
|Anopheles walkeri||p(≥32 An. walkeri) = (1+exp(6.362 - 0.0116≥ILW))-1|
|Culex pipiens||p(≥32 Cx. pipiens) = (1+exp(-0.353 + 0.00989≥ILW))-1|
aEquations for the probability of mass emergence (≥128 Ae. vexans; ≥32 An. walkeri; 32 or more Cx. pipiens) mosquitoes) 10 days later, based on logistic regression analysis. The ILW was constructed for a depth of 0 m. Model fits are significant at p <0.0001 based on a likelihood-ratio test.
