Eight 'strains' of myxoma virus, spanning the complete spectrum of virulence, were tested for ability to produce plaques on rabbit kidney cells at varying temperatures and pH values. A positive correlation was found between virulence in rabbits and ability to produce plaques at supra-optimal temperature and at low pH.
