Figure 1

The predicted effects of insecticide-treated bednets upon vector bionomics and malaria transmission as a function of the ability of mosquitoes to avoid them. The effects increasing absolute coverage (C) upon effective coverage (C*), survival per feeding cycle (P f *), human blood index (Q h *), annual human biting rate (B h ), sporozoite prevalence (S) and annual entomological inoculation rate (EIR) are depicted as a function of increasing ability to avoid the intervention (increasing α).
