Vector control for the Chikungunya disease.
We previously proposed a compartmental model to explain the outbreak of Chikungunya disease in Reunion Island, a French territory in Indian Ocean, and other countries in 2005 and possible links withExpand
Electrical penetration graphs from Cicadulina mbila on maize, the fine structure of its stylet pathways and consequences for virus transmission efficiency
Five distinct electrical penetration graph waveforms characterising the feeding behaviour of the leafhopper Cicadulina mbila Naudé (Homoptera: Cicadellidae) on maize (Zea mays L.) were obtained usingExpand
Bacterial wilt resistance in tomato, pepper, and eggplant: genetic resources respond to diverse strains in the Ralstonia solanacearum species complex.
Bacterial wilt, caused by strains belonging to the Ralstonia solanacearum species complex, inflicts severe economic losses in many crops worldwide. Host resistance remains the most effective controlExpand
Seasonality of Human Leptospirosis in Reunion Island (Indian Ocean) and Its Association with Meteorological Data
Background Leptospirosis is a disease which occurs worldwide but particularly affects tropical areas. Transmission of the disease is dependent on its excretion by reservoir animals and the presenceExpand
On a temporal model for the Chikungunya disease: modeling, theory and numerics.
Reunion Island faced two episodes of Chikungunya, a vector-borne disease, in 2005 and in 2006. The latter was of unprecedented magnitude: one third of the population was infected. Until the severeExpand
Pathological Variations Within Xanthomonas campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae Support Its Separation Into Three Distinct Pathovars that Can Be Distinguished by Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism.
ABSTRACT Bacterial black spot, caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae, is an important disease of mango (Mangifera indica). Several other plant genera of the family Anacardiaceae wereExpand
Survival of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri in Leaf Lesions Under Tropical Environmental Conditions and Simulated Splash Dispersal of Inoculum.
ABSTRACT Asiatic citrus canker (ACC) is a severe disease of several citrus species and hybrids in many tropical and subtropical areas. Populations of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri in leaf and twigExpand
Evaluation of Resistance to Race 3, Biovar 2 of Ralstonia solanacearum in Tomato Germplasm
Sources of resistance to tropical race 1 strains of Ralstonia solanacearum, the causative agent of bacterial wilt, have been identified in the tomato germplasm. Till now, no experimental data areExpand
Polyphasic characterization of xanthomonads pathogenic to members of the Anacardiaceae and their relatedness to species of Xanthomonas.
We have used amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) and DNA-DNA hybridization for genotypic classification of Xanthomonas pathovars associated with theExpand
Pseudomonas aeruginosa Outbreak Linked to Mineral Water Bottles in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: Fast Typing by Use of High-Resolution Melting Analysis of a Variable-Number Tandem-Repeat Locus
ABSTRACT Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that causes nosocomial infections in intensive care units. Determining a system of typing that is discriminatory is essential forExpand
