  • Abstract : We present mathematical and statistical models of mosquito behaviour and feeding cycle dynamics. We analytically derive estimates of vectorial capacity for malaria (the potential of the mosquito population to transmit malaria). We parameterise these models to data from semi-field and field studies and evaluate the impact of current and novel vector control interventions in reducing vectorial capacity. We connect these models to malaria transmission models in humans to investigate the impact of these interventions in reducing clinical malaria transmission.
