Effects of climate and weather on vector populations. a) Effect of temperature and humidity on time constant τ temp for temporary rainfall-driven larval habitat. The habitat decay is faster for warmer and drier weather. b) Temperature effects on duration larval development, with the functional form from [4] and the present Arrhenius formulation. c) Temperature effects on duration of sporogony. The traditional degree-day formula and the present Arrhenius function are plotted, along with Beier's data from [49].
