Abstract

J. Dijkstra J.A. Khan Laboratory of Virology, Wageningen University, Wageningen, The Netherlands NL National Botanical Research Institute, Lucknow, India IN The revised International Code of Virus Classification and Nomenclature (7) followed by the Seventh Report of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) (9) have generated a lot of criticism (2,4–6). The main causes of criticism are (i) use of monomials instead of non-latinized binomials, as has been practice for some time in the past, e.g., tobacco mosaic tobamovirus, tobacco ringspot nepovirus etc. (ii) in toto italicization of official virus names. Following the expression of different views among virologists on this issue, it is being debated and an opportunity has been provided for reconsideration of the revised ICTV code (1,8,10). This note attempts to analyse the existing critisms being raised and justifies the continuation of the present ICTV code.
