Genera "Host Range"

Enterovirus Picornaviridae: host range in nature "most species are host-specific. Exceptions include coxsackie B5 virus, EMC virus and aphthviruses; serologic tests suggest they pass occasionally between man and domestic (cloven-footed) animals." (B72)
Hepatovirus Picornaviridae: host range in nature - see above (B72)
Cardiovirus Picornaviridae: host range in nature - see above (B72)
