Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Malaria
  • Agriculture

His scientific interests lie mostly in Malaria, Ecology, Anopheles gambiae, Anopheles and Vector. His Plasmodium falciparum and Mosquito control study in the realm of Malaria connects with subjects such as Transmission. His Plasmodium falciparum research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Microbiology and Virology.

John I. Githure combines subjects such as Drosophila melanogaster and Malaria transmission with his study of Ecology. John I. Githure interconnects Insect, Botany, Veterinary medicine, Aedes and Culex in the investigation of issues within Anopheles gambiae. His study in Anopheles is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sampling frame, Spatial heterogeneity and Geographic information system.

His most cited work include:

  • Short report: entomologic inoculation rates and Plasmodium falciparum malaria prevalence in Africa. (328 citations)
  • Spatial distribution and habitat characterization of anopheline mosquito larvae in Western Kenya. (240 citations)
  • Integrated vector management for malaria control (225 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Anopheles gambiae, Ecology, Malaria, Anopheles and Veterinary medicine. His Anopheles gambiae study also includes fields such as

  • Larva and related Agronomy and Substrate,
  • Botany and related Sugar. The Plasmodium falciparum and Malaria transmission research he does as part of his general Malaria study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Transmission and Socioeconomics, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His Plasmodium falciparum study incorporates themes from Blood meal and Virology. His Anopheles research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Entomology, Vector, Spatial heterogeneity and Paddy field. While the research belongs to areas of Veterinary medicine, John I. Githure spends his time largely on the problem of Culex quinquefasciatus, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Culex and Marsh.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Anopheles gambiae (47.79%)
  • Ecology (33.82%)
  • Malaria (31.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Anopheles gambiae (47.79%)
  • Ecology (33.82%)
  • Anopheles (29.41%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

John I. Githure mainly investigates Anopheles gambiae, Ecology, Anopheles, Veterinary medicine and Larva. Anopheles gambiae is a subfield of Malaria that John I. Githure investigates. John I. Githure does research in Malaria, focusing on Plasmodium falciparum specifically.

The various areas that John I. Githure examines in his Ecology study include Population bottleneck, Genetic structure and Population genetics. His Anopheles study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Irrigation, Agriculture, Indicator species, Survivorship curve and Paddy field. His Veterinary medicine research includes elements of Anopheles arabiensis, Arid area, Period and Insecticide resistance.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ultra-prolonged activation of CO2-sensing neurons disorients mosquitoes (118 citations)
  • Anopheles larval abundance and diversity in three rice agro-village complexes Mwea irrigation scheme, central Kenya (55 citations)
  • Biological cost of tolerance to heavy metals in the mosquito Anopheles gambiae (38 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Genetics

His primary areas of study are Anopheles gambiae, Larva, Ecology, Anopheles and Instar. His study connects Culex and Anopheles gambiae. John I. Githure combines subjects such as Abundance, Irrigation, Habitat, Agriculture and Survivorship curve with his study of Larva.

His study explores the link between Ecology and topics such as Veterinary medicine that cross with problems in Mosquito control. His studies deal with areas such as Organic matter, Pollutant, Fecundity, Toxicology and Cadmium chloride as well as Anopheles. The study incorporates disciplines such as Bacillus thuringiensis and Metallothionein in addition to Instar.
