Ae. aegypti temperature suitability for persistence and DENV transmission. (A) The annualised summary of temperature suitability for oviposition (X ovi (T)) on a normalised scale. (B) Introduction suitability; the number of days in a year where introduction of a DENV infected human would lead to ongoing transmission (Z(T) i  > 0). (C) Persistence suitability; the number of days in the year where onward DENV transmission could occur if a constant source of infectious humans were available (X(T) i  > 0). (D) The annualised summary of temperature suitability (X(T)) on a normalised scale. Predictions in all above maps are constrained to areas that permit oviposition (X ovi (T) i  > 0) on 219 or more days in the year, as determined by comparison with known occurrences of Ae.aegypti.
