Abstract

Virology Division News 1655 Arch Virol 147/8 (2002) Virology Division News VDN M. A. Mayo Scottish Crop Research Institute, Dundee, U.K. A number of taxonomic proposals were approved by the Executive Committee of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) at its meeting in Houston earlier this year. These are listed in [1]. These proposals have now been approved by a vote of the full ICTV, as required by ICTV Statutes [2]. The resulting changes include the creation of 6 new families and 8 new genera. These are listed below in Tables 1 and 2 respectively. Names of three genera were also changed (Table 3). The other changes are to the lists, and in a few instances the names, of species classified in particular genera.
