Example text

At temperate latitudes with cool winters, the frequency of blood feeding and rate of parasite maturation in the vector are diminished. At tropical latitudes, widespread transmission may be terminated during extended dry seasons that reduce vector abundance and survival, even though blood-­feeding activity may continue at refugia near permanent water sources. In both instances, transmission may be restricted spatially and involve only a small portion of the vertebrate host population. Therefore, human infections during adverse periods may be highly clumped, because vector and parasite dispersal is limited at this time.

Climate and the epidemiological environment are dynamic, with short-, mid-, and long-term variations, cycles, and trends imposed upon annual seasonality. In general, seasonal extremes between hot and cold increase as a function of latitude and/or elevation. Short-term climate variations in terms of days or weeks essentially define weather and include changes due to the interaction of global forces such as the jet stream modified by local landscape features such as oceans, mountains, and lakes. In recent years, scientists have recognized the importance of mid-­ term cycles in sea surface temperature on weather patterns.

Other parasites do not actually infect the ovary, and, although they are passed on to progeny, transmission is vertical but not truly transovarial. This latter situation is less efficient and usually only a small percentage of the progenies are infected. Transgenerational transmission in vectors such as mosquitoes also must include transstadial transmission, because the immature life stages do not blood feed. 3 Venereal Transmission Venereal transmission is the passage of parasites between males and females of vector species during mating and is relatively rare.
