Psittacine beak and feather disease virus nucleotide sequence analysis and its relationship to porcine circovirus, plant circoviruses, and chicken anaemia virus.
These findings provide further evidence of a close relationship among BFDV, PCV, and plant circoviruses but not chicken anaemia virus.
Genetic diversity of beak and feather disease virus detected in psittacine species in Australia.
While seven ORFs with the potential to encode proteins greater than 8.7 kDa were detected in the BFDV-AUS isolate described previously, only three of these ORFs were detecting in all 10 B FDV isolates for which sequence data were available.
A comparison of haemagglutination, haemagglutination inhibition and PCR for the detection of psittacine beak and feather disease virus infection and a comparison of isolates obtained from loriids.
The assays confirmed BFDV infection in two endangered swift parrots and phylogenetic analysis of the sequence data generated from ORF V1 of these isolates provide further evidence of B FDV genotypes clustering in parallel with the Loriidae, Cacatuidae and Psittacidae.

This work focuses on the collection and handling of blood samples in relation to the hematological characteristics of birds and investigates the role of haemoparasites of birds in these characteristics.
Molecular and phylogenetic characterisation of Cryptosporidium from birds.
Seroprevalence of psittacine beak and feather disease in wild psittacine birds in New South Wales.
The seroprevalence of psittacine beak and feather disease ranged from 41% to 94% in different flocks, indicating infection with the virus is widespread in wild populations.
Laboratory diagnosis of psittacine beak and feather disease by haemagglutination and haemagglutination inhibition.
Simple and sensitive haemagglutination and haemagglutination inhibition assays were developed for psittacine beak and feather disease (PBFD) virus and serum antibody, respectively. The assays were
Nucleotide sequence analysis of a novel circovirus of canaries and its relationship to other members of the genus Circovirus of the family Circoviridae.
Phylogenetic analysis of both the capsid and Rep protein-coding regions provided further evidence that CaCV is more closely related to CoCV and BFDV and more distantly related to GCV, PCV1 and PCV2.
