The Eighth Report of the International Committee on the Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) (2005)1 has recognized a hierarchy of viral taxa as follows: (order), family, (subfamily), genus, and species. Only three recognized orders of viruses are listed: Caudovirales, Nidovirales, and Mononegavirales. To avoid duplication of literature citations with the chapters on Paramyxoviridae (Chapter 33), Rhabdoviridae (Chapter 31), Filoviridae (Chapter 32), and Bornaviridae (Chapter 39) only the minimal list of references that are unique to this chapter are cited. For full documentation of facts discussed here, see the specific chapters describing each family of the Mononegavirales. Table 30.1 lists nomenclature derivations relevant to this material.
