Abstract

The relevance of producing knowledge associated with the phlebotomine fauna is related to these insects role as the main transmitting agents for severalpathogens. Among these pathogens, some of the most important are Leishmania spp., Bartonella bacilliformis and different arboviroses which affect human populations as well as other vertebrates, and have a significant impact to public health. Field work with phlebotomine sand flies contributes to generate data on the bioecology of these insects, other than making viable: information gathering and identification of possible vectors, taxonomic studies and the description of new species. Another important point is the development of research on phlebotomine sand flies bionomy, aiming to identify possible behavioral changes on this vector’s species, as well as subsidizing the implementation of more effective measures for control programs.
