Abstract

Research in progress in Florida since 1979 and the Caribbean Region since 1981 on bluetongue virus in cattle, sheep and goats is described. Twenty-two species of Culicoides that were taken in light traps located near ruminant herds in Florida, Puerto Rico, St. Croix and Barbados are listed, with an ...

Abstract

Culicoides variipennis, the only proven vector of bluetongue virus (BLU) in the western hemisphere, was evaluated as a vector of bluetongue virus serotype 2 (BLU 2). This serotype was isolated from sentinel cattle in south Florida at a site devoid of C. variipennis. C. variipennis readily fed on a...

Abstract

Bivens Arm virus (BAV) is a newly discovered rhabdovirus infecting cattle and water buffalo in Florida. The virus is classified as a member of Tibrogargan group, members of which have hitherto been found only in Australasia. They are considered to be transmitted by Culicoides species. Bivens Arm...

Abstract

The species composition and seasonal prevalence of Culicoides spp. associated with cattle at 5 sites in peninsular Florida were studied in 1980-82. Light-trap catches indicated that C. insignis predominated at 3 of the sites and C. variipennis (the only proven vector of bluetongue virus to cattle...

Abstract

In 1982 a serotype of bluetongue virus (BTV) previously unrecognized in the Western Hemisphere was isolated from cattle in the USA. Clinical disease was not seen in the cattle which were part of a sentinel herd system in Florida designed for studying the epidemiology of BTV. The isolation of...

Abstract

The first isolation of bluetongue virus (BTV) serotype 2 in the USA was in 1982 from a sentinel herd of cattle at Ona, Florida. Electrophoresis of genome RNA showed that all 16 serotype 2 isolates from this focus of infection had one of two electropherotypes (Ona A and Ona B). All genome segments...

Abstract

Nearly all of the Culicoides adults caught in light traps on a cattle feedlot in southern Florida in 1980-82 were C. insignis. Males and nulliparous females were present in all collections except those made during the exceptionally cold winter months of 1982. The mean number of eggs per egg batch...

Abstract

During field studies in 1981 on the transmission of bluetongue viruses in ruminants in Florida, a virus was isolated from Culicoides insignis collected near water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) recently imported from Trinidad. Electron microscopy showed that this isolate, for which the name Bivens Arm...
