Abstract

A method is presented for rapid determination of glycogen and sugars in individual mosquitoes. It is suitable for large scale field studies of correlations between nutritional status and behavior. The method also describes a one step procedure for total carbohydrates and the determination of nectar sugars and the hemolymph sugar trehalose.
