Can mosquitoes help to unravel the community structure of Plasmodium species?

Abstract : There has been a recent revival in attempts to understand changes in patterns of abundance of Plasmodium spp. that infect humans. This has been driven by the purportedly beneficial effects of co-infection on clinical pathology and the recognition of Plasmodium vivax as a public health problem in its own right. In contrast to the attention given to mixed-species infections in humans, parasite infections and interactions within the mosquito vector remain poorly documented, even though the distribution of vector-borne parasites such as Plasmodium spp. depends on vector-vertebrate and, crucially, vector-parasite interactions. To understand malaria epidemiology and to design appropriate control measures, this gap must be re-addressed.
