Risk modelling of spatial-temporal arbovirus transmission

The fundamental understanding of vector ecology is the sine qua non to understand the spatial-temporal risk of pathogen transmission.

Especially host-feeding patterns of blood-sucking arthropods shape the transmission cycle of vector-borne patghoesn, which direct insights into the interaction between vectors and hosts. However, there is still a lack of knowledge about the host spectrum for vector species, including mosquitoes, biting midges or sandflies.
