The genome organiza- tion and biological properties of geminiviruses allow them to be divided into four genera [1, 4, 6, 11]. Those that have a monopartite genome and that are transmitted by leafhopper insect vectors to monocotyledonous plants are members of the genus Mastrevirus, of which Maize streak virus is the type species. The genus Curtovirus comprises viruses that have a monopartite genome and are transmitted by leafhoppers to dicotyledonous plants; Beet curly top virus is the type species. The genus Topocuvirus has only one member (also the type species): Tomato pseudo-curly top virus, which has a monopartite genome and is transmitted by tree hoppers to dicotyledonous plants. The fourth genus, Begomovirus, includes viruses that are transmitted by whiteflies Archives of Virology Springer Journals
