Řasy a sinice v potravě komárů

Algae and blue-green algae as mosquito food

  • Ten genera of cyanophytes and 73 genera of algae were found in the guts of Aedes, Culex, Anopheles and Culiseta larvae collected in various breeding places of the Elbe-Lowland (Bohemia) and Prague. The quality and quantity of blue-green algae and algae found in mosquito guts depended on their presence in the water of mosquito breeding places and on the feeding type (filter fieders, scrapers) of mosquito larvae. Chlorophycean algae possesing cell wall with sporopollenin and algae with a mucilagenous (jelly) envelope appeared undamaged by the digestive process. Also spores and resting stages tended to pass undamaged through the larval intestine tract.
