Part of the Archives of Virology book series (ARCHIVES SUPPL, volume 5)

Summary

With reference to the confusion regarding the value of biological properties for the taxonomy of plant viruses, following proposal is made. Distinction between viruses should be based on the nucleotide sequences of the genome, whereas that between strains should take also biological characteristics into account.
