To explore possible changes in the community attributes of hematophagous insects as a function of forest disturbance. We compare the patterns of diversity and abundance, plus the behavioral responses of three epidemiologically distinct vector assemblages across sites depicting various levels of forest cover.

Wet-sclerophyll forests are unique ecosystems that can transition to dry-sclerophyll forests or to rainforests. Understanding of the dynamics of these forests for conservation is limited. We evaluated...
High rates of land conversion and land use change have vastly increased the proportion of secondary forest in the lowland tropics relative to mature forest. As secondary forests recover following aban...
The required efforts, feasibility and predicted success of an intervention strategy against an infectious disease are partially determined by its basic reproduction number, R0. In its simplest form R0...
The Indian pangolin (Manis crassicaudata) is under threat due to hunting for local consumption and illegal trafficking of scales and meat. The dearth of scientific studies on the ecology of the M. cra...
Soil nutrients influence the distribution of tree species in lowland tropical forests, but their effect on productivity, especially at local scales, remains unclear. We used tree census, canopy occupa...
Tropical diseases are continuously on the rise throughout the world as they are spreading and manifesting in various locations globally. The more prominent vector tends to be the mosquito ...
The overarching goal of this project is the elimination of two neglected tropical diseases (NTD): soil-transmitted helminthiasis and rabies. The specific objective of this pilot study was...
The study involves a randomized placebo controlled trial that aims to assess if a mouthwash (Listerine cool mint) is able to reduce the cumulative incidence of gonorrhoea, chlamydia and sy...
Dengue viruses are the most medically important arthropod-borne pathogens worldwide, with transmission occurring in most tropical and sub-tropical regions. An estimated 390 million infecti...
Assessing the effect of neglected tropical diseases on Plasmodium falciparum transmission in an area of co endemicity.
A genus of mosquitoes (CULICIDAE) frequently found in tropical and subtropical regions. YELLOW FEVER and DENGUE are two of the diseases that can be transmitted by species of this genus.
The branch of medicine concerned with diseases, mainly of parasitic origin, common in tropical and subtropical regions.
