• On the basis of 14 new complete DNA-A sequences, we describe seven new island monopartite begomovirus species, suggesting the presence of an extraordinary diversity of begomovirus in the SWIO islands. (microbiologyresearch.org)
  • While only two recombination events characteristic of SWIO islands isolates were identified, numerous re-assortments events were detected between EACMV and EACMKV, which seem to almost freely interchange their genome components. (uct.ac.za)
  • CONCLUSIONS: Rapid and extensive virus spread within the SWIO islands was demonstrated for three CMG complex species. (uct.ac.za)
  • Although predicted to intensify into a tropical cyclone, Alenga weakened near midday December 6, and was downgraded to moderate tropical storm status before it moved out of the South-West Indian Ocean (SWIO) and into the Australian region, early on December 7. (wikipedia.org)
  • These isolated islands are relatively unspoilt but their wildlife is not very varied and therefore can be quickly damaged by any human activity and particularly by introduced species of both plants and aninmals. (wikipedia.org)
  • From large Indian cities to unspoilt little island gems-in the Laccadive Sea and to UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Sri Lanka-this will be a voyage that truly combines nature and culture. (expeditiontrips.com)
  • We demonstrate that terns act as a major host for influenza viruses on oceanic islands and that, in addition to being infected with virus subtypes usually associated to wild birds, they also could regularly be in contact with viruses that represent a significant threat to veterinary and human health.

  • The introduction and spread of zoonotic diseases to and between oceanic islands is indeed likely to be closely associated to migratory movements of flying vertebrates such as birds and bats [ 2 ]. (plos.org)
  • The next evidence of settlement here comes from successions of African and Malagasy tribal groups who, escaping persecution, fled to the islands. (wikipedia.org)
  • Spatial isolation represents a major barrier to the introduction and transmission of infectious agents on oceanic islands. (plos.org)

  • The review will also identify key business and technical practices, how Asset Management is perceived by the owners on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and will identify lessons learned from the UK for the North American utility infrastructure owners and engineers. (environmental-expert.com)
  • As insular nations and territories in an increasingly globalized, militarized and largely unregulated ocean, they face particular challenges. (brill.com)
  • Animal migration is a key mechanism for the dispersal of infectious agents over long distances [ 1 ] and could play an important role in the spread of pathogens to island ecosystems. (plos.org)
  • The first developed in July in the Australian basin, and briefly crossed into the south-west Indian Ocean on July 14. (wikipedia.org)
  • In addition, Cyclone Daryl, which formed in the Australian basin on March 6, crossed into the south-west Indian Ocean on March 16 as a weakening storm without being renamed. (wikipedia.org)
  • On June 24, 1886, the islands of Ngazidja (Grande Comore) comprised eleven sultanates, but, in 1886, the sultan tibe (paramount ruler and sultan) of Bambao unified them, Ndzuwani (Anjouan), and Mwali Sultanate (Mohéli island) become French protectorates, French résidents are posted on the three islands.

  • Commonly overlooked in the fields of African and international studies, this text traces the islands' history and explores their diverse contemporary social, political and economic trajectories. (brill.com)
  • Our findings indicate that terns represent a major host for IAV on oceanic islands, not only for seabird-related virus subtypes such as H16, but also for those commonly isolated in wild and domestic ducks (H3, H6, H9, H12 subtypes). (plos.org)
  • South West Indian Ocean islands tomato begomovirus populations represent a new major monopartite begomovirus group. (microbiologyresearch.org)
