FORATTINI, Oswaldo Paulo; KAKITANI, Iná; MASSAD, Eduardo  and  MARUCCI, Daniel. Studies on mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) and anthropicenvironment: 5- Breeding of Anopheles albitarsis in flooded rice fields in South-Eastern Brazil. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1994, vol.28, n.5, pp.329-331. ISSN 1518-8787.

Studies on breeding Anopheles albitarsis and association with rice growth in irrigated paddy fields were carried out during the rice cultivation cycle from December 1993 to March 1994. This period corresponded to the length of time of permanent paddy flooding. Breeding occurred in the early stage up until five weeks after transplantation when rice plant height was small. That inverse correlation may give potential direction to control measures.
