Interpretive Summary: This chapter describes the general characteristics of the family Peribunyaviridae. This includes genome, replication and translation strategies. It also includes virion morphology, host range and current taxonomy. Finally, it includes details on all currently accepted virus species in this family of arthropod- and/or vertebrate-infecting viruses.

Technical Abstract: Distinguishing features and biology of Orthobunyavirus, Herbevirus, Pacuivirus, and Shangavirus genera that comprise the family Peribunyaviridae are described. These viruses are enveloped and contain three single-stranded, negative sense RNA genome segments. All peribunyaviruses infect arthropods and most also infect vertebrates, resulting in human and veterinary diseases.
