Table 2 The number of Ae. albopictus and Ae. niveus mosquitoes collected in non-forest, homestead and agriculture, and forest land cover types in 2013

From: Abundance and distribution of sylvatic dengue virus vectors in three different land cover types in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo

Species Ae. niveus Ae. albopictus Total
Land cover Number (% of all collected) Number (% of all collected)  
Non-forest 3 (21) 557 (82) 560
Forest 11 (79) 120 (18) 131
Total 14 (100) 677 (100)  
  1. The proportion of Ae. niveus collected in forests compared to non-forest sites was greater than the proportion of Ae. albopictus collected in forests compared to non-forest sites (Fisher’s exact test, N = 691, P < 0.0001)
