Abstract

The author spent two years in French West Africa, mostly at Bobo-Dioulasso, which is in the Haute Volta savanna country. The article contains a summary of the published data on the biology of and of the author's studies of certain aspects of the biology of that species. Some of the advice which is given is unduly elementary, but perhaps this must be viewed in the light of the fact that in his search of the literature the author could find only two published reports of dissections of for malaria parasites in French West Africa. Because the author's studies are largely ecological the lack of mention of tests for statistical significance is noteworthy. Not a single standard error is presented.

Among other things, the author investigated the potentially very important problem: are there two races of —zoophilic and anthropophilic? The criteria established appear to be of dubious validity and usefulness.
