Abstract

Whitefly-transmitted viruses, belonging to the family Geminiviridae (subgroup III Geminivirus),cause serious diseases in many crops, such as bean, cassava, cotton, tobacco and tomato. Their vector is Bemisia tabaci, a whitefly species commonly occurring in the tropics and subtropics. (In glasshouses in the temperate zones, the greenhouse whitefly, Trialeurodes vaporariorum plays a role in the transmission of, among others, beet pseudo-yellows Luteovirus.)
