Perspectives sur la classification des virus d'invertébrés

Mémoires Originaux


After outlining the evolution of the classification of invertebrate viruses the paper emphasizes that the current need is not to develop separately the classification of this group but to make a thorough study of the characteristics of each virus with the object of incorporating it into a general system to be adopted by the Moscow International Microbiological Congress. Proposals were submitted for such inclusions into several systems of general classification which were actually under consideration.
