Abstract

Abstract.

Oocyst counts were compared between mosquitoes that fed on humans versus mosquitoes that fed on monkeys, both of which were infected with the Chesson strain of Oocyst counts obtained from mosquitoes fed on humans were almost 10-fold higher in number. Mosquitoes were more likely to be infected and with a higher rate of infection when they fed on monkeys before the peak in the asexual parasite count. Mosquitoes that fed on humans were more likely to be more heavily infected when fed after the peak in the asexual count. Of several species of owl monkeys, was infected at a higher frequency. On the basis of oocyst counts, were the most susceptible and were the least susceptible of the mosquito species tested.
