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… 

Assessing whitefly diversity to infer about begomovirus dynamics in cassava in Brazil

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.

Optimal Irrigation Scheduling for Greenhouse Tomato Crop (Solanum Lycopersicum L.) in Ecuador

Tomato crop is grown worldwide and is considered a mass consumer product. In Ecuador, tomato growers face two major issues: water scarcity and water mismanagement, which cause a reduction in the

Assessing the diversity of whiteflies infesting cassava in Brazil

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.

Phylo‐biogeographical distribution of whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Insecta: Aleyrodidae) mitotypes in Ecuador

The B. tabaci endemic to Ecuador were more diverse with respect to mtCOI-tRNAleu sequence than previously known, and occupied distinct microclimate niches suggestive of ecological resilience.

High-Throughput Sequencing Reveals Differential Begomovirus Species Diversity in Non-Cultivated Plants in Northern-Pacific Mexico

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.

Distribution and diversity of begomoviruses in tomato and sweet pepper plants in Costa Rica

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.

Barcoding of Plant Viruses with Circular Single-Stranded DNA Based on Rolling Circle Amplification

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.

Tomato Apical Leaf Curl Virus: A Novel, Monopartite Geminivirus Detected in Tomatoes in Argentina

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.

A Novel Strain of Tomato Leaf Curl New Delhi Virus Has Spread to the Mediterranean Basin

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.
