Science
English term or phrase: not least
Context: In the years that followed, more and more would be learned about the SIV viruses - not least that many different African monkeys were host to their own SIVs, several of which were so different from each other that they must have been evolving seperately.

Dutch translation:veel meer dan alleen dat
Explanation:
not at least > niet in het minst

Echter! er staat niet "not at least" maar "not least"

Mij lijkt dan de beste vertaling "veel meer dan alleen dat"

Vermoedelijk past dat ook uitstekend in de context.

Sorry, don't agree with 'titi'


Explanation:
'veel meer dan alleen dat...' is -and I'm almost 100 % sure about this- not what is meant.
I stick to 'niet in het minst', because that's what the author is emphasizing, giving the fact he he goes on 'several of which were so different...'

niet het minst


Explanation:
een veel voorkomende verwarring:
'niet in het minst' betekent 'helemaal niet'
'niet het minst' betekent 'het meest'

de twee uitdrukkingen zijn elkaars tegengestelde!

en last but not least: titi heeft dus gelijk
