Myxomatosis: the virulence of field strains of myxoma virus in a population of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus L.) with high resistance to myxomatosis

  • J. W. Edmonds (a1), I. F. Nolan (a1), Rosamond C. H. Shepherd (a1) and A. Gocs (a1)

The virulence of field strains of myxoma virus is increasing in the Mallee region of Victoria where the resistance of the rabbit to myxomatosis is high. This suggests that the climax association will be a moderately severe disease.
