|Contribution||Reported (per Manson) that early development of human malaria parasite occurred rapidly in stomach of mosquito.|
|Notes||Ronald Ross. Observations made in summer of 1895. Based on Manson's belief that changes seen in the crescent stage [gametocyte] in vitro normally ccurred in the mosquito. Ross found that they occurred even faster in the mosquito, suggesting that the mosquito stomach was the natural locus for early development of the crescent stage. Reported by Manson, Brit. Med. J., March 1896. See Ross 1897 and 1898.|
