seroprevalence of three paramyxoviruses; hendra virus, tioman virus, cedar virus and a rhabdovirus, australian bat lyssavirus, in a range expanding fruit bat, the grey-headed flying fox (pteropus poliocephalus).habitat-mediated global change is driving shifts in species' distributions which can alter the spatial risks associated with emerging zoonotic pathogens. many emerging infectious pathogens are transmitted by highly mobile species, including bats, which can act as spill-over hosts for pathogenic viruses. over three years, we investigated the seroepidemiology of paramyxoviruses and australian bat lyssavirus in a range-expanding fruit bat, the grey-headed flying fox (pteropus poliocephalus), in a n ...202032374743
hendra virus infection dynamics in the grey-headed flying fox (pteropus poliocephalus) at the southern-most extent of its range: further evidence this species does not readily transmit the virus to horses.hendra virus (hev) is an important emergent virus in australia known to infect horses and humans in certain regions of the east coast. whilst pteropid bats ("flying foxes") are considered the natural reservoir of hev, which of the four mainland species is the principal reservoir has been a source of ongoing debate, particularly as shared roosting is common. to help resolve this, we sampled a colony consisting of just one of these species, the grey-headed flying fox, (pteropus poliocephalus), at ...201627304985
