Summary and Info
This series explores how vectors (carriers of disease agents, such as insects) acquire, carry and subsequently transmit pathogens to hosts. It covers the spectrum of vectors, including carriers of plant pathogens as well as medically related pathogens. The Chapters in Volume 7 include: 1. K. Gibb, J.W. Randles: Transmission of velvet tobacco mottle virus and related viruses by the mirid Cyrto- peltis nicotianae. 2. N. Carter, R. Harrington: Factors influencing aphid population dynamics and behavior and the consequences for virus spread. 3. R.H. Bagnall: Cyclic epidemics of aphid-borne potato viruses in Northern seed-potato-growing areas. 4. C.J. Andrews, R.C. Sinha: Interactions between barley yellow dwarf virus infection and winter-stress tolerance in cereals. 5. J.R. DeLoach, G. Spates: Artificial diets for blood feeding insects: a review. 6. I. Maudlin: Transmission of African trypanosomiasis: interactions among Tsetse immune system, symbionts, and parasites. 7. C. Chastel, I. Humphery-Smith: Mosquito spiroplasmas. The first four chapters cover topics in plant virus transmission by insects. The final three chapters focus on human and animal disease associations with bollid-feeding flies.
