Welcome

About this Website

Hello, there! This website is the home for maps used to visualize the effect that our changing climate will have on mosquito populations and the diseases they carry in the coming years.

We will compare the geographic levels of the Southeastern United States, North America and the world.

Before diving into the maps, let's build a little background knowledge about mosquitos, climate change, and how these maps are made. Click on the button below to begin this exploration!

Aedes mosquito risk of disease transmission where red is higher risk and blue is lower. Continue exploring the website to find out more about what this means!

About Us

We are the Quantitative Disease Ecology & Conservation Lab. We specialize in medical geography and ecology at the human, animal and environmental intersections. 


Our interdisciplinary work incorporates tools from medical geography, quantitative and applied ecology, and the social sciences. We use techniques from the lab to the field to the computer to the white board.

We work in tandem with the Southeastern Center of Excellence in Vector Borne Diseases.
