On the spread of Ross River virus through the islands of the Pacific

On the spread of Ross River virus through the islands of the Pacific

Wildlife diseases of the Pacific Basin and other countries A proceedings of the 4th International Conference of the Wildlife Diseases Association Sydney, Australia, August 25-28, 1981: ; 33-36

This review of the spread of Ross River virus through the islands of the Pacific since it was first found in Fiji in 1979 includes a considerable amount of as yet unpublished information. The main mosquito vectors in Australia are Culex annulirostris Skuse and Aedes vigilax (Skuse).
