SciDev.Net, a website that provides science and technology information for the global development community, reports on a study led by Odum School Associate Professor John Drake. The paper, Ecological niche and potential distribution of Anopheles arabiensis in Africa in 2050, appears in the June 3, 2014 issue of Malaria Journal.

Drake and coauthor John C. Beier of the University of Miami modeled the distribution of the malaria-transmitting A. arabiensis mosquito under three different climate change scenarios. Their results suggest that suitable mosquito habitat across Africa will decline by roughly 50 percent by 2050. The study was supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (R01GM093345).
