exposure of wildlife to the schmallenberg virus in france (2011-2014): higher, faster, stronger (than bluetongue)!the schmallenberg virus (sbv) has recently emerged in europe, causing losses to the domestic livestock. a retrospective analysis of serodata was conducted in france for estimating seroprevalence of sbv among six wildlife species from 2011-2012 to 2013-2014, that is during the three vector seasons after the emergence of the sbv in france. our objective was to quantify the exposure of wildlife to sbv and the potential protective effect of elevation such as previously observed for bluetongue. we al ...201725958882
serosurvey for schmallenberg virus in alpine wild ungulates.because schmallenberg virus (sbv) was first reported in domestic ruminants in northern italy in february 2012, we conducted a serosurvey to assess the presence of sbv-specific antibodies in free-ranging alpine ruminants. the tested serum samples were from chamois (23) and red deer (352) hunted from 2007 to 2013. all of the serum samples collected through september, 2012, tested negative, whereas a single chamois serum and 21 red deer sera taken during the 2012-2013 hunting season tested positive ...201424034277
