V. Evaluation of Cross-Immunity against Type 1 Dengue Fever in Human Subjects Convalescent from Subclinical Natural Japanese Encephalitis Virus Infection and Vaccinated with 17D Strain Yellow Fever Vaccine
Bush Bush Forest entomologic investigations were concerned mainly with mosquitoes, the most conspicuous element of the bloodsucking arthropod fauna. More than 92 species were demonstrated, but only about two dozen were common. Mosquitoes were studied in relation to their physical environment, seasonal activity, diel activity, horizontal stratification in the forest, food preferences, and larval habitats. Large numbers were collected for virus studies.
Other groups investigated were phlebotomine flies (10 species), Culicoides flies (10 species), horseflies (18 species), Cuterebridae (one species), sucking lice (four species), fleas (one species), ticks (nine species), and various mites including 15 species of trombiculid.
