Notes

Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax are the most common causative agents of malaria. Plasmodium falciparum is the most deadly. In recent years, some human cases of malaria have also occurred with Plasmodium knowlesi, a species that causes malaria among monkeys and occurs in certain forested areas of South-East Asia.
