Title:Environmental Factors That Affect The Abundance of Larval Mosquitoes

Subject(s):Larval Mosquitoes
Stormwater Ponds
Abstract:The development of stormwater infrastructure causes an increase in available aquatic habitat for mosquito breeding and larval development, posing drastic human health consequences. It has been observed that a diverse community of predators have been found to decrease mosquito abundance1. Multiple species coexisting with mosquitos was found to decrease the percentage of mosquitoes in wet water communities, strongly highlighting the role that zooplankton play in the assembly of aquatic communities2. Studying stormwater communities will help determine the main contributors to why mosquitoes oviposit in certain urban stormwater ponds.
