Abstract

COSTA, Fernanda Silva; SILVA, Juliana Junqueira da; SOUZA, Carina Mara de  and  MENDES, Júlio. Population dynamics of Aedes aegypti (L) in an urban area with high incidence of dengue. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.3, pp. 309-312. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822008000300018.

Aspects of the population dynamics of Aedes aegypti were investigated from collections over a two-year period in the urban area of Uberlândia, State of Minas Gerais. The population dynamics of this mosquito were influenced by physical factors such as temperature and rainfall. High larval densities also had an influence on mosquito development.

Keywords : Aedes aegypti; Population dynamics; Population density; Seasonality; Uberlândia.
