About this book

GM mosquitoes have been developed that are resistant to pathogen infection and transmission, but the public health and environmental consequences of releasing such insects are unclear, mainly because of a lack of knowledge of the ecology and population biology of mosquitoes. This book is the result of a workshop, held in June 2002, that addressed these issues.
