For amphibians, I assume that you looked through Table 1 of the Viruses paper below.  When it was published in November 2011, Table 1 contained all published cases of ranavirus infection and disease in amphibians as well as some unpublished cases.  That table is a good start.


There also are a few additional published cases from 2012 and 2013 on the GRC Publication web pages.


Best, Matt

Subject: Locations Affected by Ranaviruses


Dear GRC,


I am trying to compile a list of countries/areas that have had wild outbreaks of vertebrate ranaviruses/iridoviruses to make a distribution map for the Global Ranavirus Reporting System.


I know that I have missed locations that have iridovirus infections in fish because I cannot get access to most of the publications for more specific information than is presented in the abstract.


I would really appreciate any feedback that you could give on the attached list. Please feel free to modify the attached document using Track Changes in MS Word or email me your comments directly at [log in to unmask].


Thank you,
