Host-associated genetic differentiation in Thrips tabaci (Insecta; Thysanoptera), as determined from mtDNA sequence data
TLDR
These genetic findings corroborated recent experimental observations on the heterogeneity of T. tabaci populations with regard to host-plant preference and their capacity to be vectors for tomato spotted wilt virus and must be considered a complex of cryptic (sub)species.
TAXONOMIC REVISION OF THE FAMILY CLOSTEROVIRIDAE WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE GRAPEVINE LEAFROLL-ASSOCIATED MEMBERS OF THE GENUS AMPELOVIRUS AND THE PUTATIVE SPECIES UNASSIGNED TO THE FAMILY
TLDR
A comparative examination of the amino acid sequence divergence of three taxonomically relevant genes supports the notion that they are all genetically divergent variants of a single species, GLRaV-4, and the establishment of a fourth genus within the family Closteroviridae is justified.
Multiplex Detection of Criniviruses Associated with Epidemics of a Yellowing Disease of Tomato in Greece.
TLDR
A reverse transcription (RT) multiplex PCR assay using a simple sample preparation procedure was developed to allow rapid, specific, and simultaneous detection of both ToCV and TICV sequences in two steps.
The Efficiency by Which Thrips tabaci Populations Transmit Tomato spotted wilt virus Depends on Their Host Preference and Reproductive Strategy.
TLDR
The results show that T. tabaci forms a complex in terms of host preference, reproductive strategy, and ability to transmit TSWV, and that the thrips of arrhenotokous populations infesting tobacco are highly efficient vectors.
Incidence of Viruses Infecting Allium Spp. in Greece
TLDR
A survey identified viruses infecting garlic, leek and onion crops and wild Allium species in Greece and found all symptomatic plants were found to be infected by LYSV, Onion yellow dwarfvirus and Leek yellow stripe virus.
Control of viruses infecting grapevine.
Transmission of tomato spotted wilt tospovirus by Thrips tabaci populations originating from leek
TLDR
The transmission of tomato spotted wilt tospovirus by Thrips tabaci collected from leek was studied using the petunia local-lesion leaf-disc assay and the virus was more efficiently acquired from infected leaf material of Datura stramonium than from that of Emilia sonchifolia.
Incidence and molecular variability of Apple stem pitting and Apple chlorotic leaf spot viruses in apple and pear orchards in Greece.
TLDR
The results show the high impact of the use of infected plant material in the dissemination of ASPV and ACLSV and illustrate the need to implement programs for the production of certified pome fruit propagating material in Greece, in order to prevent further spread of the viruses.
