Abstract

The proposal aims to continue systematic studies on mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae), focusing on the genus Anopheles. The main subjects will be Neotropical subgenera, especially the subgenus Nyssorhynchus and Anopheles darlingi. Although it is the most important neotropical vector of human Plasmodium, involvement of An. darlingi in the dynamics of transmission of malaria in Central America and southern Brazil seems less important than in the Amazonas Region, and also its vector importance is not well established in localities in southern Brazil. We propose to investigate the possibility that the populations of Amazonas Region and southern Brazil have distinct gene pools. The main objectives are: 1) genetic characterization of populations of An. darlingi of north and south/southern Brazil; 2) to estimate phylogenetic position of An. darlingi within the subgenus Nyssorhynchus; 3) to contribute to the identification of species of the subgenus Nyssorhynchus, especially because some species are involved in the transmission of human Plasmodium, several arboviruses, and filariases. Some members of the subgenus Nyssorhynchus are able to adapt to human environments. Within this context, we intend to carry out systematic studies on An. darlingi and species of the Nyssorhynchus employing both morphological and molecular tools. A fragment of the cytochromo C oxidase subunit I (COI) gene of the mitochondrial genome will be employed to evaluate genetic structure of populations of An. darlingi, and the nuclear single copy white gene, to estimate phylogenetic placement of An. darlingi within Nyssorhynchus.
