The Systematics of Aedes Mosquito Project SAMP, a cooperative venture between the Smithsonian Institution and the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command, conducts biosystematic research on mosquitoes of medical importance to the Army. SAMP fulfills these objectives by performing biosystematic studies on important groups of aedine vectors of arboviruses. SAMP provides information on potential vectors for the guidance of military field research teams and other governmental agencies and prepares monographs and technical papers, which summarize data on the ecology, taxonomy and medical importance of these vectors in Africa. In addition, SAMP performs curation and research on the national collection of mosquitoes at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution.
