The Potyviridae

, : The Potyviridae. The Potyviridae: xii + 516 pp.

Following an introductory chapter in which the size and economic importance of the family Potyviridae are discussed and a tabulation of the names and acronyms for the 198 definitive and possible members and their assignment to three definite and 2 possible genera is provided, there are a further 11 chapters addressing: host range, symptomatology and cytopathology; transmission; genome structure, variation and function, coat protein structure and variation; serology; taxonomy; evolution and higher taxa; diagnostic techniques; epidemiology and control strategies; case histories of some important potyviruses; and conclusions and future directions. The Potyviridae are the largest family of plant viruses and cause diseases on a wide range of temperate and tropical crops. Extensive study of this group over the last 10 years has resulted in major advances in knowledge of their molecular structure, genome organization and sequence, mode of replication and polyprotein processing and variation. This book collates much of this new molecular information and presents it in the context of the accumulated knowledge on the virology and symptomatology of this family of viruses. Wherever possible data are summarized in tabular form. An extensive bibliography and a subject index are appended.
