frog virus 3-like infections in aquatic amphibian communities.frog virus 3 (fv3) and fv3-like viruses, are members of the genus ranavirus (family iridoviridae), and they have been associated with infectious diseases that may be contributing to amphibian population declines. we examined the mode of transmission of an fv3-like virus, and potential hosts and reservoirs of the virus in a local amphibian community. using the polymerase chain reaction to detect infected animals, we found an fv3-like virus in south-central ontario, canada, amphibian communities, ...200818263826
phylogenetic analysis of a frog virus 3-like ranavirus found at a site with recurrent mortality and morbidity events in southeastern ontario, canada: partial major capsid protein sequence alone is not sufficient for fine-scale differentiation.ranaviruses are emerging pathogens of amphibians. we examined the phylogenetic relationship of ranaviruses from infected lithobates sylvaticus tadpoles 2001-2004 from oliver pond, ontario, canada. the isolates sequenced are primarily frog virus 3-like, but because of sequence convergence, finer-scale analysis based on the major capsid protein was uninformative.201323568931
