Rapid estimation of Aedes aegypti population size using simulation modeling‚ with a novel approach to calibaration and field validation | World Mosquito Program Skip to main content
Craig R. Williams et al., Journal of Medical Entomology

The field validation of model that predicts Aedes aegypti population dynamics is described here. By using readily available breeding site and meteorological data‚ dengue vector population size and structure can be predicted. This validated model (known as CIMSiM) is vital for developing and testing strategies for Wolbachia field release.
