Abstract : A conference devoted to the investigation of virological diseases of human beings, animals, and plants was convoked in Vladivostok at the end of August, 1969. The choice of the location for this complex conference was determined by the extraordinary spread of virological infections in the Far East. These infections are related to the unique climatic, geographic, and ecological peculiarities of this region. The basic tasks of this conference were to bring together virologists of different specialties, primarily in the fields of general virology, the evaluation and generalization of theoretical and practical achievements in the fields of medical and veterinary virology, as well as the virology of plants, and the exchange of actual experiences in the use of present day methods of investigation in each of these branches.
