Assessing the larval niche of Culex pipiens in Chile

Physical-chemical characteristics of the water in urban and natural larval habitats of <em>Culex pipiens</em> in three regions of Chile: water temperature (Tw), conductivity (C), total dissolved solids (STD) and salinity (SAL). Values are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. Different letters indicates differences in the Tukey test (α = 0.05).
