Abstract

Viruses are most frequently discovered because they cause disease. To expand knowledge of plant-associated viruses beyond these narrow constraints, non-cultivated plants of the Tallgrass Prairie of the United States were systematically surveyed for evidence of viruses. This report discusses putative viruses of the family Secoviridae identified by the survey. Sequence analysis suggests the presence of at least six viruses in the study site, including Bean pod mottle virus, Maize chlorotic dwarf virus, three previously undescribed viruses within the subfamily Comovirinae and one unclassifiable virus.
