As pointed out in the preface to this edition, the classification of animal viruses has been subjected to frequent revision in recent years to reflect new information regarding morphological, chemical, and physical characteristics. Accordingly, 11 new genera have been listed, whereas the list of unclassified viruses has shrunk.
Each chapter begins with a general description of viruses within the genus and discusses in detail their morphology, chemical composition, and physicochemical properties. Antigenic properties and methods of cultivation of individual members of the genus are comprehensively described. Pathogenecity in natural and experimental hosts are reviewed succinctly, and when information is available
