Abstract

Arch Virol (2007) 152: 649–653 DOI 10.1007/s00705-006-0919-4 Printed in The Netherlands Coming to grips with the naming of viruses; continuing discord, or a way out? L. Bos Plant Research International WUR, Wageningen, The Netherlands Received September 23, 2006; accepted December 6, 2006; published online January 12, 2007 # Springer-Verlag 2007 I read with much interest this journal’s recent editorial on from their hosts. However not all agree with this distinction, Virologists, taxonomy and the demands of logic by MHV as the number of criteria distinguishing viruses from cellular Van Regenmortel [30], and also his more detailed article on organisms steadily decreases, indeed some now consider it Virus species and virus identification: Past and current con- irrelevant to make this distinction and consider viruses troversies [31].

Either way, taxo- earlier papers, especially that written with BWJ Mahy [33] on nomically, viruses are treated as organisms, particularly after Emerging Issues in Virus Taxonomy. Most of his earlier articles the species concept adopted for viruses [21, 24, 25, 22] is on the naming of viruses were published as President of ICTV, essentially the same as that of cellular organisms.
