Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A one-year longitudinal entomological study was carried out at Kafr Fazara village, Sinnuris District, Faiyoum Governorate from January to December 1996. The results revealed that three species of anophelines were found. A. sergenti was the most prevalent species followed by A. multicolor and the least prevalent one was A. pharoensis. The influence of climatic conditions on anopheline abundance was also studied. The mean monthly temperature has a significant effect on larvae abundance, while no significant correlation was found concerning relative humidity or wind speed for both larvae and adult anophelines. The transmission season of P. falciparum in Faiyoum Governorate extended to more than eight months a year which could explain the persistence of malaria up there. The bionomics of the recorded vectors were discussed.
