Global warming may slow the spread of dengue fever

Dengue fever is a potentially lethal disease of humans that is caused by a virus transmitted in the saliva of certain mosquitoes. Recent studies led by Penn State researchers have found that mosquitoes of the species Aedes aegypti that are infected with dengue virus are less tolerant of the higher temperatures associated with global warming.

Mosquitoes that carry dengue might not survive rising temperatures

Disease-carrying mosquitoes are expected to venture into new territory due to climate change and urbanization, but new research suggests that higher temperatures may curb the spread of at least one infection: dengue fever.

Global warming may limit spread of dengue fever, new research finds

Infection with dengue virus makes mosquitoes more sensitive to warmer temperatures, according to new research led by Penn State researchers. The team also found that infection with the bacterium Wolbachia, which has recently been used to control viral infections in mosquitoes, also increases the thermal sensitivity of the insects.

Elizabeth McGraw named head of Department of Biology
