Abstract

Thirty-one field populations of Aedes aegypti (L.) were compared using isozyme starch gel electrophoresis to characterize genetic variation between populations. Ae. aegypti were collected from seven provinces in Thailand. Thirty-one isozyme encoding loci, including 19 polymorphic loci, were characterized. Only small levels of genetic differentiation were observed among the 31 district populations in the seven provinces. Isolation by distance among populations from the seven provinces showed no correlation between genetic variation and geographical distance.
