A review of the plant virus, viroid, liberibacter and phytoplasma records for New Zealand
Australasian Plant Pathology 44 (5), 463-514
Abstract: A complete review of the records of plant virus, viroid, liberibacter and phytoplasma in New Zealand has found evidence for 220 viruses, seven viroids, two liberibacters and two phytoplasmas. Of these, 80 viruses, one viroid and two species of liberibacter have been reported as new to New Zealand since the last review in 2006. Ten viruses and two viroids, which were previously placed in the unconfirmed category, have now been confirmed. Based on insufficient evidence, 25 virus, three viroid, three mollicute and 36 disease records are considered unconfirmed.
