The second edition of the International Catalogue of Arboviruses Including Certain Other Viruses of Vertebrates publishes data as of 1975 from a continuously-revised, confidentially-communicated working document entitled “The Catalog of Arthropodborne and Selected Vertebrate Viruses of the World.” The first published edition in 1967 contained information regarding 204 viruses; two supplements describing 37 and 14 additional viruses were published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in 1970 and 1971, and this second edition describes 359 viruses. These catalogues are results of efforts of the Subcommittee on Information Exchange of the American Committee on Arthropod-borne Viruses. The history of the origin and development, and the operation of the Working Catalogue are described in this second edition, as are the two other Subcommittees whose activities relate directly to the Catalogues (Interrelationships Among Catalogued Arboviruses formed in 1966, and Evaluation of Arthropod-borne Status started in 1971).
