Vector Behavior in Transmission Ecology Research Coordination Network, VectorBiTE RCN

A wide variety of plant and animal pathogens have evolved transmission cycles that require arthropod vectors. This strategy for transmission has evolved independently several times, and many of the world’s most medically and economically important pathogens are spread by insect vectors. Vector-borne disease (VBD) transmission is remarkably complex because interactions between pathogens, vectors, hosts, and their physical environment dictate dynamics. The VectorBehavior in Transmission Ecology Research Coordination Network (VectorBiTE RCN) seeks to build a collaborative network of researchers working on VBDs and to provide them with tools to better understand and explore how variation in vector behavior and life history drive transmission dynamics.
