Table 1 Incomplete assortative mating between An. coluzzii and An. gambiae s.s. in mating swarms collected in the villages of VK7, Soumousso and Bana in Western Burkina Faso

From: Does extreme asymmetric dominance promote hybridization between Anopheles coluzzii and Anopheles gambiae s.s. in seasonal malaria mosquito communities of West Africa?
