The article focuses on the tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV). The virus walks between plant and vector could one day lead to better management strategies for plants and possible implications for human viruses as well. The researchers are looking at why the virus is worse in some years than others. It seems that winter and early spring rains and temperatures affect the rate at which thrips populations increase. TSWV belongs to the same family of viruses that cause hemorrhagic fevers as well as other diseases.
