Information sources utilized by scientists for pioneering releases of mosquitoes in 2009 in the Cayman Islands and in 2011 in Australia (Q21 and Q23). In the small group of respondents aware of releases prior to their commencement (upper row of pie charts), a relatively high proportion of individuals from disease non-endemic countries (right columns) had access to private information that was unavailable to scientists from disease-endemic countries.
