Abstract

This dataset is the collection of audio and 3D-tracked flight responses of free-flying, swarming, Anopheles coluzzii, male and female mosquitoes to the played-back sound of opposite-sex, free-flying, swarming, Anopheles coluzzii and Anopheles gambiae s.s. mosquitoes. 

Methods

3D-tracking of individual swarming mosquitoes (from the Trackit software) and sound recordings were used to measure the mosquito response to sound stimuli.

The 3D-flight trajectories (positions and linear velocities) along time and for each swarming mosquito are given in a CSV file.

The sounds are 8 kHz/24bit WAV files and their durations are ~1h per replicate.

There are 10 replicates for the males and 13 replicates for the females. 

Usage Notes
