About this book

The Bunyaviridae represent an extremely diverse family of viruses,whichuntilrecentlywererelativelypoorlyunderstood. These viruses have become increasingly important in both human and veterinary medicine, and, most recently, bunyaviruses have been recognized as plant pathogens as well. This book attemptsto treat all aspectsof their biology, including their natural history, genetics, virion structure, unusual pathway of intracellular assembly, gene structure and the mechanisms of its expression, antigenicity, and pathogenesis, inasinglevolume. Assuch,itfillsavoid inthe virologyliterature.Thisvolumeisalsotimely,asthemolecular descriptionofthisfamilyisnowalmostcomplete. Thereader can expect to find the present state of the art on how bunyavirusesaremaintainedinnature,andhowtheyreplicate and sometimescausedisease.
