Physics of mosquito vision--an overview.

Author information

  • 1US Department of Agriculture, Gainesville, FL 32604, USA.


Important information for the location by mosquitoes of a wide range of resources is provided by the visual perception of objects and the environment. Behavior of mosquitoes in the location of these resources has been well studied, yet relatively little has been reported on the physical parameters pertaining to mosquito vision. An understanding of physics relating to vision aids in an appreciation of the importance of morphology and physiology and ambient light conditions in mosquito vision.
