Long-term survival of introduced genes in a natural population of Aedes Aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae)

  • Nancy Lorimer (a1)

Extract

A population of Aedes aegypti (L.) near the Kenya coast was monitored for nearly a year after a genetic control experiment. Two genetic markers that were carried by released males but unknown to the region persisted in the population during the entire period of observation. The endurance of introduced genetic material in a natural population is an important step toward the use of genetic control in insect management.
