Abstract

Whitefly-transmitted (WFT) geminiviruses that cause epidemics in vegetable, staple and fibre crops are increasing in prevalence and distribution in subtropical, tropical and fringe temperate regions of the world. This article reviews the research on WFT geminiviruses and presents results substantiating the need for a more thorough investigation of tropical weed species which serve as potential sources of undescribed and uncharacterized WFT geminiviruses. -from Author
