The Broad Host Range and Genetic Diversity of Mammalian and Avian Astroviruses
The phylogenetic diversity and current classification methodology of astroviruses based on the ORF1b and ORF2 genes are described, highlighting the propensity of astoviruses to undergo interspecies transmission and genetic recombination which greatly increase diversity and complicate attempts at a unified and comprehensive classification strategy.
Update on Potentially Zoonotic Viruses of European Bats
The present review provides an update on the earlier article and summarizes the most important viruses found in European bats and their possible implications for Public Health.
Bat Astroviruses: Towards Understanding the Transmission Dynamics of a Neglected Virus Family
The knowledge about the tissue tropism of astroviruses has been expanded to some neurotropic strains that have recently been shown to be responsible for encephalitis in humans and livestock, especially bovines and pigs.
Molecular survey of RNA viruses in Hungarian bats: discovering novel astroviruses, coronaviruses, and caliciviruses.
New bat species harboring BtAstV in Europe and found new species of CalVs are described and one of the most intriguing findings of this investigation is the discovery of novel BtCalVs in Europe.

European Bats as Carriers of Viruses with Zoonotic Potential
In this review, selected viruses detected and isolated in Europe are discussed from a point of view in regard to their human-pathogenic potential.
Metagenomic analysis of fecal and tissue samples from 18 endemic bat species in Switzerland revealed a diverse virus composition including potentially zoonotic viruses
In conclusion, bats in Switzerland naturally harbour many different viruses, and metagenomic analyses of non-invasive samples like ground stool may support effective surveillance and early detection of viral zoonoses.
Bats and Viruses: Emergence of Novel Lyssaviruses and Association of Bats with Viral Zoonoses in the EU
This review is an update on the current situation regarding zoonotic virus discovery within bats in the EU, and provides details of potential future mechanisms to control the threat from these deadly pathogens.
Parasite diversity of European Myotis species with special emphasis on Myotis myotis (Microchiroptera, Vespertilionidae) from a typical nursery roost
The Myotis myotis from Gladenbach (Hesse, Germany) were parasitized by a diverse parasite fauna with high infestation rates and the finding of endoparasitic cyclophyllidean cestodes that have a two-host lifecycle suggests a non-predatory transmission mechanism.
