Abstract

This study reports, for the first time, the presence of Panstrongylus lignarius in the State of Rondonia, Brazil. Specimen of P. lignarius was collected from a flat in an urban area of the municipality of Porto Velho, Western Amazon. With this finding of P. lignarius, the number of Triatominae species in the State of Rondonia has increased from six to seven. The occurrence of P. lignarius is worrisome, because this species has been found to be naturally infected with Trypanosoma cruzi and there has been evidence of its domiciliation capabilities in other countries of South America.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 October 2017.
All research outputs
#17,281,203
of 25,376,589 outputs
Outputs from Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical
#517
of 1,148 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#192,396
of 306,214 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical
#6
of 13 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,376,589 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,148 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.9. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 306,214 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 13 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 61% of its contemporaries.
