DescriptionThis comprehensive catalog of viral diseases of three large groups of arthropods updates the previous surveys of the world's literature published by Hughes in 1957, by Martignoni and Langston in 1960, and by Martignoni and Iwai in 1975. This computer-based catalog lists over 1,100 species of insects, mites, and ticks, each reported to have one or more of 22 viral diseases or disease groups, for a total of about 1,690 host-virus records. The catalog consists of two lists. In the first one, the hosts are listed in taxonomic sequence (order, family, genus, species). Families appear alphabetically within each order, genera alphabetically within each family, and species alphabetically within each genus. In the second, all hosts are listed alphabetically by specific names. The host-virus records are stored on computer tape and disks.
