Geography
Country: Argentina
State: Misiones

Coordinate: 27° 30' S, 55° 53' W

Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: fragment
Substrate: canopy
MAT: 21.5
MAP: 2000.0
Habitat comments: "a mean annual temperature of 21.5°C (range 15–35°C), high humidity (74%), and annual rainfall averages 2000mm. Forests in this region are classified as deciduous stationary forest... The landscape is dominated by plantations of yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis) and ranching, which demonstrates the extensive human influence on the environment. The sites are characterized by a mosaic of vegetation surrounded by areas dedicated to cattle breeding and forest in galleries along rivers" and sampling was apparently within the forest because "The sampling localities were selected based on the places where YFV was confirmed in dead howler monkeys"; forest fragments are generally < 100 ha based on satellite images
Methods
Life forms: mosquitoes
Sampling methods: no design, other nets, hand capture
Sample size: 11
Years: 2009
Nets or traps: 15
Sampling comments: "captures were carried out... from January 7 to January 14, 2009... Capture of adult mosquitoes was carried out with CDC traps... They were set at 1.6 m above ground. The attractive element in this type of trap was carbon dioxide (CO2-baited), supplied by dry ice. A total of 25 traps were distributed in the study sites... 15 traps [were used] in Garupá" (number of sampling days is unclear); "In addition, manual capture was performed at ground level and at the forest canopy level at an elevation of approximately 10–15 m, depending on the local trees and vegetation, by using entomologic net and bottle-type manual vacuums"
