Abstract

The study of avian malaria has received much attention in recent years because of the recognition that knowledge concerning it is often very helpful in the understanding of human malaria. While many investigators have dissected wild Anopheles mosquitoes in a search for the vectors of human malaria and culicine mosquitoes for the vectors of human filariasis, there apparently has been little effort to find the natural vectors of bird malaria, although numerous species of mosquitoes have been shown to be capable of transmitting the disease under laboratory conditions.
