Flowchart of the mosquito gonotrophic cycle. Yellow rectangles represent physical states that a mosquito can be in. Blue ovals represent phases that mosquitoes go through to reach a new state. Thin black arrows connect phases (ovals) to resulting states (yellow rectangles). Arrow annotation refers to probabilities as described by Chitnis and colleagues . Purple rectangles represent states of mosquitoes as typically recorded in experimental hut studies: unfed alive (UA); unfed dead (UD); fed alive (FA); fed dead (FD); 'Trans' denotes a transitory state (not an end state as observed in mosquito counts the mornings of experimental hut studies).
