Mosquito Zoological Poster - Culex pipiens/Anopheles maculipennis

The Science:

Culex pipiens and Anopheles maculipennis are two common pest mosquitoes found in many locations around the world. The ancestors of Drosophila- or fruit flies - and mosquitoes diverged some 250 million years ago. With females adapted to sucking blood in order to produce their brood of eggs, both males and females otherwise rely on plant nectar and other sugars as food. Culex pipiens is considered a vector for diseases including West Nile Encephalitis, and Anopheles has historically been a scourge for its transmission of Malaria. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.

The Story:

Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
