Table 1 Wolbachia frequency and density in wMel and wAlbB Ae. aegypti (Pud) release lines on exposure of their larvae (first instar) to constant temperature of 30°C compared to 26 ± 1°C (Control)

From: Sensitivity of wMel and wAlbB Wolbachia infections in Aedes aegypti Puducherry (Indian) strains to heat stress during larval development
