LOW LEVELS OF GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION IN MOSQUITO (CULEX QUINQUEFASCIATUS) POPULATIONS FROM RECIFE , PERNAMBUCO , BRAZIL .

Revista Brasileira de Genética, 17(2):145-147, 1994.

ABSTRACT

An allozymic survey of five populations of Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera; Cullicidae) in Recife , Pernambuco, Brazil , revealed very low levels of genetic differentiation in malate dehydrogenase, isocitrate dehydrogenase and phosphoglucomutase loci, judging from the low values of F ST found. An explanation is proposed, based on seasonal change in population size, sanitation conditions and urban transport.
