On the dynamics of two efﬁcient malaria vectors of the Afrotropical region: Anopheles gambiae s.s. and Anopheles arabiensis
(The University of Bergen, 2013-08-19)
Weather and climate are only some of the factors influencing the dynamics of malaria. With the ongoing debate on the consequences of climate change, there is a need for models which are designed to address these questions. ...
A brief history of climate – the northern seas from the Last Glacial Maximum to global warming
The understanding of climate and climate change is fundamentally concerned with two things: a well-defined and sufficiently complete climate record to be explained, for example of observed temperature, and a relevant ...
How malaria models relate temperature to malaria transmission
(BioMed Central, 2013-01-18)
Background: It is well known that temperature has a major influence on the transmission of malaria parasites to their hosts. However, mathematical models do not always agree about the way in which temperature affects ...
Cattle and climate in Africa: How climate variability has influenced national cattle holdings from 1961–2008
The role of cattle in developing countries is as a source of high-quality food, as draft animals, and as a source of manure and fuel. Cattle represent important contribution to household incomes, and in drought prone ...
