Concurrent spread of Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) with invasion of Bemisia tabaci Q rather than B in China suggests a more mutualistic relationship between TYLCV and Q than B. To assess this hypothesis, we quantified the impacts of TYLCV on the performance and competitiveness of B and Q in the laboratory. The results showed that relative to their non-infected counterparts feeding on cotton (a non-host for TYLCV), infected B exhibited significant reductions in life-history traits… CONTINUE READING
