Modélisation de l'impact des îlots de chaleur urbains sur les dynamiques de population d'Aedes aegypti, vecteur de la dengue et du virus Zika

Abstract : Mosquitoes of the species Aedes aegypti are the most competent vectors for the transmission of the Zika, dengue and Chikungunya viruses. This mosquito is perfectly suited to urban environments where its presence must be monitored and controlled due to the difficulty of fighting it. In this paper, we present an alternative methodology toin situ observation of these populations, made difficult due to the complexity of urban environments. We use agent-based modeling to study the effects of environmental factors on mosquito population dynamics and to estimate their local densities. We illustrate the potential of the simulator by testing the hypothesis of the impact of urban heat islands on mosquito populations in Bangkok
