Abstract

Given the lack of information about mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in green areas that surround the city of São Paulo, our proposal is to study these species present in the areas of Mata Atlântica, represented by the Parque Estadual da Cantareira and by Environmental protection area Capivari-Monos. With the current proposal, we will expand the analysis of the biodiversity of mosquitoes, adding knowledge arising from the previous project to the study of the State Parks and environmental protection areas where comparison of the species cataloged in municipal green areas compared to those that will be found in Atlantic forest areas more preserved, however susceptible to deforestation in the short term, it is of vital importance in understanding and installation of environmental preservation measures and analysis of risks of transmission of pathogens by vectors. Initially, the work plan includes the identification of the Culicidae fauna and the study of ecological aspects related to the presence of these species in the areas preserved and occupied by man. The analysis of feeding habits and the presence of arbovirus in mosquitoes can contribute to a better assessment of risks and measures of prevention and control of species. As these environments are natural environments of many wild mosquitoes and potential havens for mosquitoes invaders, including some relevant vectors, the acceleration of deforestation in these areas through urbanization and adaptation of these species in the regions occupied by man can be, in the not too distant future, a serious problem of public health.
