Ratification vote on taxonomic proposals to the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2014)

Abstract

Changes to virus taxonomy approved by a vote of all ICTV members in February-March 2014 are reported.

Changes to virus taxonomy (the Universal Scheme of Virus Classification of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses [ICTV]) are the result of a multi-stage process. In accordance with the ICTV Statutes, proposals submitted to the Executive Committee undergo a review process that involves input from the ICTV Study Groups (SGs) and Subcommittees (SCs), other interested virologists, and the ICTV Executive Committee. Reviewed proposals are then presented for ratification to the full ICTV membership by publication on an ICTV web site followed by an electronic vote. The latest list of approved proposals was prepared and presented on the ICTVonline web pages by November 2013. This list of proposals was then sent via email on 18 February 2014 to the 163 members of ICTV, namely the ICTV Executive Committee Members, Life Members, ICTV Subcommittee Members and ICTV National Representatives. Members were then requested to vote on whether or not to ratify the taxonomic proposals (voting closed on 18 March 2014).

This report lists the taxonomic proposals that were ratified by ICTV members in March 2014. Note that by ICTV convention, all approved taxon names are italicized. The details of all these proposals can be obtained at http://www.ictvonline.org/Official_ICTV_Proposals.htm.

The proposals are listed by subcommittee, and then the filename as posted on-line. We have also indicated the study group (SG) names and/or lead author(s) of each proposal. Unfortunately, it is impractical to list here all the authors and others who have contributed to each proposal. However, we want to acknowledge that these proposals represent a great deal of work from many individuals, including SG members and SC chairs or their deputies. Current SG members are listed in the ICTV Directory at http://www.ictvonline.org/subcommittees.asp?se=5.

Conclusion

All of the above taxonomic proposals were approved by the members who voted, mostly unanimously, and always >95 %. A number of constructive comments were also received, and these will be discussed by the Executive Committee. The return rate of votes was approximately 48 %. These taxonomic changes are now part of the official ICTV taxonomy, represent changes to the taxonomy published in the Ninth Report [1] and are in addition to changes approved in February 2012 [2] and February 2013 [3]. An up-to-date list of all approved taxa can be found on the ICTV online web site: http://ictvonline.org under the Taxonomy link.

In addition to these taxonomic changes, a few changes to the Statutes of ICTV to allow the appointment of a third Secretary were also approved. Statute changes require the additional approval of IUMS Virology Division before they can be implemented.
