   schema:reviewBody "Praise for the Second Edition: " ... The organisation of the work ensures constant clarity and makes research easier ... includes a large number of renowned international scientists as authors ... the authors ensure that the content of the work is of very high quality ... This book should not be missing from any biomedical facility nor any biological institute ... In this context the availability of the online version is very welcome ... The price ... is very reasonable."--Arzneimittel-Forschung (Drug Research) Praise for the First Edition: "No other source that I am aware of allows the reader to look up, in alphabetical organization, virtually any virus of animals, plants, or bacteria."--American Society For Microbiology News "For a long time there has been a gap in the virological literature ... the Encyclopedia of Virology aims to fill this gap and does so admirably."--The Times Higher Education Supplement "I consider this encyclopedia to be a valuable addition to my own virology library. I believe the readership which will most benefit by this work includes basic scientists in virology and microbiology. If clinicians, students, and others need access to this information, they will find it on the shelves of libraries which choose to house this compilation, and I hope that many libraries will make that choice."--Harley A. Rotbart, University of Colorado School of Medicine, in ASM News "Recent advances in virological research have been extraordinary, but the finding of new strains has also kept abreast of them. In June, 1993, a new strain of hantavirus was uncovered in the four-corners area of the U.S. (14 states were found to have had cases in the latest count), leading virologists to scramble to isolate the virus. This was accomplished in November of the same year, when it was found in the excreta of deer mice. This and many other virus results are reported in the just-published Encyclopedia of Virology. Over 250 articles examine all phases of animal, insect, plant, and bacteriophage viruses ... The Encyclopedia of Virology is recommended for reference departments of academic, medical, and corporate libraries." - Medical Libraries Discussion Group on Internet "The Encyclopedia is user friendly ... The print is large and legible and frequent subheadings direct the reader to the appropriate material. The many photographs, figures, and tables enhance the text ... The Encyclopedia would be a valuable addition to the reference libraries of medical schools, veterinary schools, graduate schools, and hospitals." - New England Journal Of Medicine "This major overview of the field of virology seems to have no precedent. This is a reference book for any library that serves the basic or clinical science. It also makes interesting and accessible reading for librarians who want to know more about this important subject." - Elizabeth A. Wood in Medical Reference Services Quarterly "The encyclopedia exhibits thoughtful, convenient organization." -CHOICE." ;
