Figure 3

Anopheles darlingi attractiveness to symptomatic vivax malaria patients related to body temperature and parasite stages. Gametocyte carriers were defined as patients with detectable sexual stages of the parasite in blood smears using microscopy. Fever = Individuals with body temperature >37.5°C; No Fever = individuals with body temperature <37.5°C. Two-way ANOVA (fever and gametocytes) and Sidak’s test (comparisons). * indicates significant differences (P < 0.05). NS indicates non-significant differences (P > 0.05). N = 2 for each variable combination (i.e., fever and gametocytes, fever and no gametocytes, no fever and gametocytes and no fever and no gametocytes).
