    ..Concurrent infections can have important consequences for host condition and fitness, including elevated mortality risks. In addition, interactions between coinfecting pathogens may have important implications for transmission dynamics...

    Scott R Loss
    Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, Shelford Vivarium, Urbana, IL, USA
    Vector Borne Zoonotic Dis 9:13-8. 2009
    ..These combined results suggest that nestling passerines play no evident role in WNV amplification and transmission in the Chicago area...

    Bethany L Krebs
    School of Integrative Biology, University of Illinois, Urbana, IL 61801, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 281:20141586. 2014
    ..These results therefore support the encounter-dilution hypothesis in a vector-borne disease system. Our results suggest that disease-related selective pressures on sociality may depend on the mode of disease transmission. ..

    Allison M Gardner
    Department of Pathobiology, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, 61802, USA
    Parasit Vectors 6:9. 2013
    ..In urban environments, these mosquitoes commonly oviposit in roadside storm water catch basins. However, use of this habitat is inconsistent, with abundance of larvae varying significantly across catch basins at a fine spatial scale...
