Oxford Long-Term Ecology Lab

Long-Term Ecology, Biodiversity Conservation, and Environmental Stewardship Technologies


Our database of mosquito recordings is growing with considerable help from the CDC in Atlanta, Dr Sheila Ogoma at USAMRU-Kenya, Alex Fyfe at the Jenner institute amongst others; it now contains several thousand recordings including free flying, non-tethered recordings of more than 20 species (multi-aged, both male and female). The updated database of dominant vector species sibling species in Asia is now completed barring a few final checks (and has already been used in a submitted paper). Work continues in trying to establish a colony of two UK species (Culiseta annulata and Culex pipiens)

Watch these short videos of Culiseta annulata probing and feeding.
