This project will provide a broad picture of changes in Mosquito biodiversity on the South Shore of Suffolk County, using the Barcode Long Island Sample database. In recent years there has been changes in the geographic distribution of mosquito populations in the Northeastern United States, including Long Island (Andreadis, et al., 2020). Some of these species serve as vectors for disease causing pathogens (Bajwa, et al., 2018). In an attempt to document these changes in biodiversity of Mosquito Populations, our team will focus on the South Shore of Suffolk County, Long Island. We will use the Barcode Long Island database to examine changes in Mosquito populations in this area for at least the last 5-7 years. References: Andreadis, T. G., Armstrong, P. M., Bajwa, W.
