Composition and diversity of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) in urban parks in the South region of the city of São Paulo, Brazil

Abstract: Many parks in the city of São Paulo contain remnants of Atlantic Forest. Of the 30 municipal parks in the South of the city, we investigated two in this study (Santo Dias Park and Shangrilá Park) in order to survey their mosquito fauna and investigate the presence of potential bioindicators of environmental conditions and vectors of human pathogens. Mosquitoes were collected monthly between March 2011 and February 2012 using aspirators, Shannon and CDC traps for adult mosquitoes and larval dippers and suction … Show more

“…As urban parks are open to the public, infected visitors can contribute to the expansion of several arboviruses. Furthermore, the continuous contact between humans, competent vectors and viruses make these parks high-risk areas for infection by DENV and other arboviruses, raising the question of the relevance of urban green areas in the transmission and maintenance dynamics of arboviruses [59][60][61] . Bearing in mind the biological characteristics of Ae.…”

“…Dessa forma, no caso dos arbovírus, uma vez que estão presentes no mesmo ambiente que o vetor e o hospedeiro vertebrado, por meio do hábito hematofágico, os vírus podem se manter em circulação através do ciclo silvestre, em áreas florestadas e rurais, e ciclo urbano, em áreas urbanas e preriurbanas (Figura 2) (FORATTINI, , 2002SIMMONDS et al, 2017). Com relação à busca de alimento, pode ocorrer a distribuição vertical dos mosquitos entre a copa das árvores e o nível do solo, o que vai depender de cada espécie e da localização do hospedeiro (CARVALHO et al, 2014(CARVALHO et al, , 2017.…”

“…Aegypti (transmissor do vírus da febre amarela silvestre, na África e urbana nas Américas, dos quatro sorotipos do vírus da dengue), Ae. albopictus (vetor potencial dos quatro sorotipos do vírus da dengue, Chikungunya e Zika na América), Haemagogus leucocelaenus (vetor do vírus da febre amarela silvestre na América), dentre outras (URBINATTI et al, 2001;MONTES, 2005;RIBEIRO et al, 2012;DUARTE et al, 2013;MEDEIROS-DE-SOUSA, 2013, 2015PAULA et al, 2015;CARVALHO et al, 2014CARVALHO et al, , 2017CERETTI-JÚNIOR et al, 2015; MORAIS e NATAL, 2017; HEINISCH, 2019). Embora a fauna de culicídeos que circulam no município de São Paulo sejam mais conhecidas atualmente, ainda são escassas as informações a respeito da fauna de mosquitos presentes em Unidades de Conservação como a APA Capivari-Monos e o Parque Estadual da Cantareira, inseridos na região metropolinana de São Paulo.…”
