Table 1.

Parameters of the logistic growth model (and 95% CI) used to characterize the cumulative distribution of the number of mosquitoes that become infectious (b) over time at different temperatures. Parasite development times (EIP, in days) and proportion of infectious mosquitoes across temperature, when 10, 50 and 90% of the final infectious population is infectious are also shown.
