This third edition of A Dictionary of Virology offers an authoritative, concise, and up-to-date list of all viruses affecting vertebrate species, from humans to fish. It has been completely revised since the 1997 edition to include 25% more entries, including many completely new viruses. The entries have been restructured so that all viruses are listed and classified in accordance with the standards set by the 7th Report of the ICTV. The extensive cross-referencing and illustrative tables further enhance the utility of this reference.

What People are Saying About This

Christopher Ring

With the field of virology moving so rapidly, a new edition of A Dictionary of Virology is more than welcome. ...the Dictionary is a handy reference text for all that study, or are interested in, viruses whether they be undergraduates, postgraduates or experienced researchers. It will be of use to all those interested in the biological, as well as the more clinical aspects of virology. It represents a wealth of information not only on viruses but also techniques, cell lines and reagents used for studying viruses. ...I cannot recommend this book more highly. (Christopher Ring, GlaxoSmithKline, in Virus Research, 2002)

Ronald B. Luftig

...helpful source book for all vertebrate virologists. ...This book clearly took a great deal of research to put together and should be on every virologist's shelf. (Ronald B. Luftig, LSU Health Sciences Center, in ASM News, 2002)
