serological evidence of infection of tacaribe virus and arboviruses in trinidadian bats.sera from 39 species of bats collected in trinidad between 1972 and 1974 were tested against some or all of 18 arboviruses in hemagglutination inhibition (hi) and/or suckling mouse neutralization (n) tests. a few sera were hi-positive with mucambo, eastern equine encephalitis (eee), oriboca, restan, manzanilla, guama, bimiti, and catu. no sera were hi-positive with mayaro, caraparu or maguari. many ser inhibited one or more of the group b hemagglutinins: ilheus, st. louis encephalitis (sle), den ...1978204207
host and viral traits predict zoonotic spillover from mammals.the majority of human emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic, with viruses that originate in wild mammals of particular concern (for example, hiv, ebola and sars). understanding patterns of viral diversity in wildlife and determinants of successful cross-species transmission, or spillover, are therefore key goals for pandemic surveillance programs. however, few analytical tools exist to identify which host species are likely to harbour the next human virus, or which viruses can cross species ...201728636590
predicting the global mammalian viral sharing network using phylogeography.understanding interspecific viral transmission is key to understanding viral ecology and evolution, disease spillover into humans, and the consequences of global change. prior studies have uncovered macroecological drivers of viral sharing, but analyses have never attempted to predict viral sharing in a pan-mammalian context. using a conservative modelling framework, we confirm that host phylogenetic similarity and geographic range overlap are strong, nonlinear predictors of viral sharing among ...202032385239
