Transmission of Viruses by Whiteflies

  • 915 Accesses

Part of the Springer Protocols Handbooks book series (SPH)

Abstract

The whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci, Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) are efficient vectors of many plant viruses (Begomovirus, Carlavirus, Crinivirus, Ipomovirus, Torradovirus). Whiteflies are known to transmit more than 80 virus diseases mainly in the tropical and subtropical countries. Many of the whitefly transmitted viruses cause yellow or golden mosaic or leaf curl symptoms. Whitefly transmitted viruses have non-persistent, semi-persistent and persistent relationships.

Key words

  • Non-persistent viruses
  • Semi-persistent viruses
  • Circulative transmission
  • Begomovirus
  • Carlavirus
  • Crinivirus
  • Ipomovirus
  • Torradovirus
