The Culicidae of the Cambridge District
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 06 April 2009
1. The mosquito fauna of the Cambridge district, which includes a large stretch of cultivated fenland, is compared with that of the “natural” fen at Wicken and also with that of other districts.
2. The ecology of the various species is discussed and the conclusion is reached that the main factor determining why different species are found in different types of habitat is the time of year at which the female lays her eggs, and whether she lays them on damp ground or standing water.
