The family Rhabdoviridae is included with the families Bornaviridae, Filoviridae, Pneumoviridae, and Paramyxoviridae in the order Mononegavirales (see Chapter Paramyxoviridae, and Pneumoviridae Fig. ).Rhabdoviruses are enveloped, single-stranded, negative-sense RNA viruses. The family Rhabdoviridae currently includes eleven genera, with additional genera . Rhabdoviridae is a family of viruses whose members infect vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants (see Jackson et al., for review of plant rhabdoviruses). Most and perhaps all plant rhabdoviruses are rounded at both ends to give a bacilliform shape. The family Rhabdoviridae consists of more than single-stranded, negative-sense, nonsegmented viruses that infect a wide variety of hosts, including vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants. Common to all members of the family is a distinctive rod- or bullet-shaped morphology. Human pathogens of medical importance are found in the genera Lyssavirus and Cited by: Rhabdoviruses have a very wide host range and have been isolated from plants, insects, and almost from all vertebrates including fish and primates. The Rhabdoviridae family consists of six genera which have all been associated with diseases. While rhabdoviruses that are etiological agents of human.

The ubiquitous host range of the rhabdoviruses is impressive. T&F logo. : Philip I. Marcus, Margaret J. Sekellick. The viruses of the family Rhabdoviridae have an exceedingly broad host range and are widely distributed throughout the animal and plant king­ doms. Animal rhabdoviruses infect and often cause disease in insects, fish, and mammals, including man. The prototype rhabdovirus, vesicular stomatitis Author: Robert R. Wagner. This chapter describes the natural history, epidemiology, and what is known of the disease produced by bovine ephemeral fever virus (BEFV). BEF is a febrile disease of cattle characterized by high morbidity in herds affected, and by low mortality .

Rabies virus stands apart as the most uniformly fatal of all viruses and remains one of the most common viral causes of mortality in the developing world. Much of the basic virology of the rhabdoviruses has been elucidated by studies of vesiculoviruses. The epidemiology of human rabies primarily reflects that of animal rabies in the community.
