Predation

Predation of container-breeders by Toxorhynches rutilus and Anopheles barberi, and intraguild predation among filter-feedingAedes and Ochlerotatus container-breeders. This is the work of my graduate student, Michelle Willey (Ph.D., 1994, unpublished). She compared functional response parameters for first-instar T. rutilus preying on A. aegypti, A. albopictus, and O. triseriatus.

More details about this when time permits.
