Zhou Yibin, Zhu Jiang, Fan Mingqiu, Leng Peien

Abstract :

The relationship between the spatial pattern of mosquitoes and the water supply and drainage system at Zhujiajiao district Shanghai province, China, was studied by sample–plot and Pearson correlation analysis. The results showed that the TWINSPAN method sorted 61 sample in the study area into 5 types. The clustering results showed a strong correlation between landuse and population of mosquito. Correlation analysis showed that a significant negative correlation between the Aedes albopictus density and population constituent and perforated strainer, rainwater manhole covers, rain water covers, significant positive correlation existed between the Pale culex ones and perforated strainer, rainwater manhole covers, rain water covers. The Culex tritaeniorhynchus ones had the same trend as the Aedes albopictus. While significant correlation between the Anopheles sinensis and Culex tritaeniorhynchus, and significant negative correlation with sewage.
