French Guiana, a French territory, and Amapá, a Brazilian state, are situated in an inter-tropical area in South America. They provide an excellent climate to the presence of malaria vectors, and particularly the main vector in South America, Anopheles darlingi. This database is a collection of different occurences of Anopheles in French Guiana and in the state of Amapá, between 1902 and 2014. Its aim is to complete the limited knowledge of the distribution of Anopheles in this area, where the cross border situation is major barrier to the elimination of Malaria.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 3,917 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
