(Science: epidemiology) a virus which uses arthropods as vectors and is transmitted in their saliva to the definitive host. For example, yellow fever.

Origin: from arthropod borne virus a large heterogeneous group of rna viruses divisible into groups on the basis of the virions; they have been recovered from arthropods, bats, and rodents; most are borne by arthropods; they are linked by the epidemiologic concept of transmission between vertebrate hosts by arthropod vectors (mosquitoes, ticks, sandflies, midges, etc.) that feed on blood; they can cause mild fevers, hepatitis, hemorrhagic fever, and encephalitides.Viruses that are transmitted via the arthropod taxonomic classification of animals.
