Abstract

Temperature and rainfall are important drivers of mosquito abundance and have been used in previous studies as the basis for predictive models. To elucidate patterns of mosquito population dynamics in urban environments, the variation in mosquito abundance over a year and its association with climatic variables were analyzed. The Akaike information criterion was used to analyze the correlations between abundance and climate variables in mosquito populations collected in 2 urban parks: Alfredo Volpi Park and Burle Marx Park. Our findings suggest that both climatic and density-dependent variations may have an important impact on fluctuations in mosquito abundance, modulating population dynamics in urban parks.
