Abstract

The vast majority of genetic studies of phlebotomine sandflies have had as their goal the resolution of taxonomic problems. In this paper, Gregory Lanzaro and Alon Warburg summarize the literature describing levels of genetic polymorphism, both within and between sandfly species, and speculate on the significance of variability in the vector to the complex epidemiology of leishmaniasis.
