This work focuses on those insect virus families found primarily or exclusively in insects, covering all major families of insect-selective viruses except for the baculoviruses which were described in a previous volume of The Viruses series. Included are the established families of insect viruses, the newly recognized ascovirus family, and the nudiviruses, which probably represent a separate family but currently remain unclassified. While most of the viruses covered in this volume have little direct relevance to human health, they are vitally important from an environmental perspective.
