Culex quinquefasciatus larvae development arrested when fed on Neochloris aquatica

M. Florencia Gil and colleagues describe isolating and identifying the microorganism Neochloris aquatica found during field sampling in artificial breeding sites of Culex quinquefasciatus and the subsequent discovery of its potential as a source of bioactive compounds for the control of mosquito populations important in veterinary and human health.

Terrestrial venomous animals, the envenomings they cause, and treatment perspectives in the Middle East and North Africa
