Abstract

Summary

The field program of the Trinidad Regional Virus Laboratory in Bush Bush Forest included studies in which arboviruses (their prevalence and epidemiology) were the chief interest and also studies on the biology of the arthropods and vertebrates possibly associated with arbovirus cycles. The techniques used included the exposure of sentinel animals, trapping and bleeding of small mammals and reptiles, netting and bleeding of birds, collection of bloodsucking arthropods, and observations on the diel- and seasonal-activity patterns, food sources, and habitat preferences of the more abundant species of mosquitoes.
