Abstract

This chapter addresses the responses of the mosquito vectors of viral pathogens to increased temperature, changing patterns of precipitation, and increased carbon dioxide concentration associated with global climate change. It focuses on immature development and related life history changes. The chapter deals with the blood-feeding patterns that influence the demography and vectorial capacity of mosquito populations. It discusses briefly the impact of climate change on mosquito-borne viral infections. Finally, the chapter highlights that while the predicted changes in abiotic factors associated with climate warming are likely to increase the size and distribution of vector populations and enhance the transmission rates of viral pathogens, the epidemiologies of diseases caused by viral pathogens will not be independent of the changes in human population size and land use, especially the storage and use of water across the landscape.
