Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) has been charged with the task of developing, refining, and maintaining a universal virus taxonomy. The Online (10th) ICTV Report depicts the current status of virus taxonomy. This chapter of the Report details the classification, nomenclature, and properties of the viruses of family Nudiviridae, a group of large, dsDNA arthopod viruses. Some members of this family cause disease in beneficial arthropods such as the Asian tiger shrimp, while others are used as biopesticides to control insect pests such as the coconut rhinoceros beetle.
