Pathway 43 Animal health: Increased or novel disease transmission in livestock could be caused by replacement of Anopheles gambiae niche with another disease vector. In this pathway, population suppression of An. gambiae could release other disease vectors from competition, leading to an increase the population density of those other disease vectors and therefore increase their vectorial capacity and disease transmission in livestock. The components of vectorial capacity (V) that would be affected in this pathway are shown in red in the equation
