Table 2 Malaria transmission levels and involvement of anopheline species in the three study sites along the altitudinal transect

From: Bionomics of Anopheline species and malaria transmission dynamics along an altitudinal transect in Western Cameroon

  Study sites of the altitudinal transect a
  Santchou (750 m) Dschang (1400 m) Djuttitsa (1965 m)
Anopheles species CSP rate ± 95% CI (NoT) EIR (ma) CSP rate ± 95% CI (NoT) EIR (ma) CSP rate ± 95% CI (NoT) EIR (ma)
An funestus 1.0 ± 2.0 (96) 3.3 (328.5) 4.2 ± 3.6 (119) 16.1 (383.3) - (0) - (0)
An gambiae 2.1 ± 0.8 (1362) 88.1 (4197.5) 1.8 ± 1.0 (840) 46.9 (2606.7) 0 (10) 0 (36.5)
Total malaria vectors 2.0 ± 0.7 (1458) 90.5 (4526) 2.1 ± 1.0 (959) 62.8 (2990.0) 0 (10) 0 (36.5)
  1. aMosquitoes were collected from each of the three study sites by a total of 120 human-nights.
  2. NoT: Number of female Anopheles mosquitoes tested with ELISA Circum-sporozoite protein (CSP); ma: Biting rates estimated by number of bites/human/year (b/h/yr); EIR: Entomological inoculation rates estimated as number of infected bites per human per year (ib/h/yr).
