Viral diseases caused by begomoviruses are of economic importance due to their adverse effects on the production of tropical and subtropical crops. In Ecuador, despite reports of significant infestations of Bemisia tabaci in the late 1990s, only very recently has a begomovirus, tomato leaf deformation virus (ToLDeV, also present in Peru), been reported in tomato. ToLDeV is the first monopartite begomovirus discovered that originated in the Americas, and its presence in Ecuador highlights the… 
Distribution and diversity of begomoviruses in tomato and sweet pepper plants in Costa Rica
TLDR
An association between geographical region and begomovirus species was observed suggesting that in Costa Rica the heterogeneity on climate, topography and agricultural system might influence the distribution of begomvirus species in the country.
Identification of a monopartite begomovirus associated with yellow vein mosaic of Mentha longifolia in Saudi Arabia
TLDR
This is the first report of identification of Tomato yellow leaf curl virus associated with yellow vein mosaic disease of M. longifolia from Saudi Arabia.
Assessing whitefly diversity to infer about begomovirus dynamics in cassava in Brazil
TLDR
The hypothesis that begomovirus epidemics have not occurred in cassava in Brazil due to the absence of competent vector populations is supported and an ongoing adaptation process of BtMEAM1 to cassava is indicated, increasing the likelihood of begoovirus emergence in this crop in the near future.
Assessing the diversity of whiteflies infesting cassava in Brazil
TLDR
The hypothesis that begomovirus epidemics have not occurred in cassava in Brazil due to the absence of competent vector populations is supported and an ongoing adaptation process of BtMEAM1 to cassava is indicated, increasing the likelihood of begoovirus emergence in this crop.
Muntingia yellow spot virus: a novel New World begomovirus infecting Muntingia calabura L.
TLDR
The whole genome sequence of a begomovirus infecting Muntingia calabura L. (family Muntingiaceae) from the province of Guayas in Ecuador was determined and the name "muntingia yellow spot virus", proposed, represents a novel species.
The role of corchorus in spreading of tomato yellow leaf curl virus on tomato in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the corchorus is serving as reservoir and alternative host and playing an important role in spreading the begomovirus associated disease in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
High-Throughput Sequencing Reveals Differential Begomovirus Species Diversity in Non-Cultivated Plants in Northern-Pacific Mexico
TLDR
High-throughput sequencing was employed to determine viral diversity of samples collected in a survey performed during 2012–2016 in seven states of Northern-Pacific Mexico, areas of diverse climatic conditions where different vegetable crops are subject to intensive farming.
A Novel Strain of Tomato Leaf Curl New Delhi Virus Has Spread to the Mediterranean Basin
TLDR
It is shown that a genetically-uniform ToLCNDV population is present in Spain, compatible with a recent introduction and seems adapted to infecting cucurbits, but poorly infect tomatoes.
Tomato Apical Leaf Curl Virus: A Novel, Monopartite Geminivirus Detected in Tomatoes in Argentina
TLDR
Based on the data presented, ToALCV genome appears to have “modular organization” supported by its recombination origin, and can be considered a type member of a new putative genus of the Geminiviridae family.
Barcoding of Plant Viruses with Circular Single-Stranded DNA Based on Rolling Circle Amplification
TLDR
Current state methods for quarantine measures are described to identify individual DNA components with great accuracy and to recognize the crucial role of the molecular viral population structure as an important factor for sustainable plant protection.

Diverse population of a new bipartite begomovirus infecting tomato crops in Uruguay
TLDR
Analysis of full-length sequences of DNA-A and DNA-B components revealed the presence of a new begomovirus with the typical genome organization of a New World begomvirus, for which the name tomato rugose yellow leaf curl virus (ToRYLCV) is proposed.
Tomato leaf deformation virus, a novel begomovirus associated with a severe disease of tomato in Peru
TLDR
Partial sequence analysis of begomovirus isolates present in symptomatic tomato samples collected in northern and central Peru suggested widespread occurrence of this new begoovirus, the first confirmation of a begomvirus infection in tomatoes in Peru.
Characterization of a New World Monopartite Begomovirus Causing Leaf Curl Disease of Tomato in Ecuador and Peru Reveals a New Direction in Geminivirus Evolution
TLDR
It is established that ToLDeV is an emergent NW monopartite begomovirus that is causing ToLCD in Ecuador and Peru, and evidence is presented that it emerged from the DNA-A component of a NW bipartite progenitor via convergent evolution and recombination.
Six novel begomoviruses infecting tomato and associated weeds in Southeastern Brazil
TLDR
The detection of members of an additional six novel species, three in tomato and three infecting weeds that are commonly associated with tomato fields: Blainvillea rhomboidea, Sida rhombifolia and Sida micrantha, which could represent a distinct lineage of New World begomoviruses, found in Brazil for the first time.
Distribution and genetic diversity of tomato-infecting begomoviruses in Brazil*
TLDR
The results indicate the existence of a high degree of pre-existing genetic diversity among tomato-infecting begomoviruses in Brazil and suggest that these viruses have emerged after being transferred from natural hosts to tomatoes, due to the introduction into Brazil of a novel polyfagous biotype of the whitefly vector.
Fulfilling Koch's postulates confirms the monopartite nature of tomato leaf deformation virus: a begomovirus native to the New World.
TLDR
ToLDeV was demonstrated, therefore, as the causal agent of the disease syndrome widespread in tomato crops in Peru, and confirmed as a monopartite begomovirus native to the New World, a significant finding for this region.
A natural recombinant between the geminiviruses Tomato yellow leaf curl Sardinia virus and Tomato yellow leaf curl virus exhibits a novel pathogenic phenotype and is becoming prevalent in Spanish populations.
TLDR
Analysis of ES421/99 showed that it exhibited a novel pathogenic phenotype that might provide it with a selective advantage over the parental genotypes, and agrees with results from field studies which revealed that the recombinant strain is becoming prevalent in the region in which it was detected.
Synonymous site variation due to recombination explains higher genetic variability in begomovirus populations infecting non-cultivated hosts.
TLDR
The results reinforce the assertion that infection of non-cultivated plant species leads to higher levels of standing genetic variability, and indicate that recombination, not adaptive selection, explains the higher begomovirus variability in non- Cultivated hosts.
Molecular biodiversity of cassava begomoviruses in Tanzania: evolution of cassava geminiviruses in Africa and evidence for East Africa being a center of diversity of cassava geminiviruses
TLDR
The molecular diversity of seven representative cassava mosaic geminiviruses infecting cassava from multiple locations in Tanzania is described and a number of putative recombination fragments that are more prominent in all components of EACMV than in ACMV are shown.
Recombination, pseudorecombination and synergism of geminiviruses are determinant keys to the epidemic of severe cassava mosaic disease in Uganda.
TLDR
Analysis of naturally infected cassava plants showed various assortments of DNA-A and DNA-B of the Ugandan viruses, suggesting the occurrence of natural inter- and intraspecies pseudorecombinations and a pattern of cassava mosaic disease (CMD) more complex than previously reported.
