Table 1 Results of the models for the overall infection prevalence (proportion of mosquitoes infected with either sporozoites, oocysts, or both), infectiousness (proportion of mosquitoes infected with sporozoites), sporozoite load, and oocyst load

From: Consequences of larval competition and exposure to permethrin for the development of the rodent malaria Plasmodium berghei in the mosquito Anopheles gambiae
