Studying the genomes of invasive populations allows for the tracing of invasion processes. In this study, the authors have focused on the invasion of Albania, Italy and Greece by the Asian tiger mosquito,Aedes albopictus' one of the most successful invasive animal species worldwide.
On 13 June 2019, in a sample of mosquitoes captured in the province of Flevoland, the Netherlands during routine surveillance, a specimen was recognised as potentially belonging to an exotic species. Based on the molecular analysis of the specimen, we concluded that it belonged to Aedes flavopictus (Yamada, 1921).
The recent reports of Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus populations in Turkey, in parallel with the territorial expansion identified in several surrounding countries, have raised concerns about the establishment and re-establishment of these invasive Aedes mosquitoes in Turkey. This cross-sectional study was performed to detect Aedes aegypti and Ae.
