Brome mosaic virus (BMV) is an isometric, non-enveloped, positive-strand RNA virus and a well-studied, representative member of the alphavirus-like super-family of human, animal, and plant viruses. BMV has been extensively studied as a model to examine some of the common features shared by all positive-strand RNA viruses. This article provides insi...

An aberrant Ascaris suum infection in a domestic dog in China in 2019 is described for the first time. This pathogen is a common roundworm of pigs with few reported cases in domestic animals. Our findings suggest a wider infection range with a possible transmission of A. suum to domestic animals that interact with humans.
Wheat dwarf virus, transmitted by the leafhopper Psammotettix alienus in a persistent, non-propagative manner, infects numerous species from the Poaceae family. Data associated with wheat dwarf virus (WDV) suggest that some isolates preferentially infect wheat while other preferentially infect barley. This allowed to define the wheat strain and the...

Average yields of Mattesia spores (spore productivity) had varied from a minimum yield (0.17 × 107 spores) for Laemophloeus turcicus adult to a maximum yield (7.46 × 107 spores) for Plodia interpunctella larva. Comparatively, the highest increase in Mattesia spore yield, recorded from P. interpunctella larva (7.46 × 107 spores) over the lowest one,...
BMC Evolutionary Biology
BackgroundAttributes of pest species like host range are frequently reported as being evolutionarily constrained and showing phylogenetic signal. Because these attributes in turn could influence the abundance and impact of species, phylogenetic information could be useful in predicting the likely status of pests. In this study, we used regional (Ch...

• Circulation of at least two Plasmodium species in multiple rodent species in Gabon. • African rodent Plasmodium host range is higher than previously recognized. • Existence of a potentially new Plasmodium species ( Plasmodium sp GAB), closely related to Plasmodium yoelii.

Meloidogyne aegracyperi n. sp. is described from roots of purple nutsedge in southern New Mexico, USA. Mature females are small (310–460 µm), pearly white, with their egg masses completely contained inside root galls. The neck is often at a 90 to 130° angle to the protruding posterior end with the perineal pattern. The distance of the dorsal esopha...
Des études récentes ont mis en évidence un nouveau genre de virus appartenant à la famille des Orthomyxoviridae, le virus influenza D (IDV). Depuis sa découverte, des études ont montré que ce virus circule sur différents continents et infecte différentes espèces animales. À ce jour, le bovin est considéré comme l'hôte principal du virus. Dans cette...

Legume plants have colonized almost all terrestrial biotopes. Their ecological success is partly due to the selective advantage provided by their symbiotic association with nitrogen-fixing bacteria called rhizobia, which allow legumes to thrive on marginal lands and nitrogen depleted soils where non-symbiotic plants cannot grow. Additionally, their...
