ABSTRACT
Focuses on a study which identified host relationships of Triatoma species implicated in transmission of Chagas disease using the ecologic niche modelling, to improve understanding of epidemiologically relevant vector and parasite reservoir distributions. Distribution modelling used; Distribution of the six species of the protracta complex and nine species of Neotroma found in mainland Mexico; Frequency of distribution of areas of overlap between Triatoma and Neotoma species.
