Fig. 3

Malaria smear positivity by ambient temperature with relative reproductive number (R0) curve. Points represent the average smear positivity rate over temperature (1 °C intervals of temperature on the x-axis) for Chulaimbo (purple), Kisumu (teal), Msambweni (magenta), and Ukunda (orange). Line represents predicted basic reproductive number (R0, rescaled to range from zero to one) as a function of temperature from an independent, a priori ecological model derived from laboratory experimental data [15]
