This case looked at the reproduction of a Malaria disease (Vittor et Al., 2009). Researchers wanted to find out about this certain type of Malaria. Deforestation occurring in the Amazon has said to be why an increase in Malaria has been shown (Vittor et al., 2009). During researchers times in the rainforest, they wanted to find reproduction sites and ask about Malaria from the people of the region (Vittor et al., 2009). Right off the bat, the researchers were trying to figure out what was going on…
