A not insignificant contribution to the etiology of the poxviridae family of viruses, and one that deserves greater recognition.
Plaut followed the methods of Jean-Joseph-Henri Toussaint (1847-1890) to produce successful cultures and an attenuated
vaccine that was effective against sheep pox. He conducted the research for this graduate thesis at the laboratory of his
mentor, Friedrich Anton Zürn (1835-1900), who was professor emeritus of veterinarian sciences at Leipzig University. The
autotypes are poor reproductions of the beautiful Otto Wigand photomicrographs that illustrate Plaut's dissertation. Copies
are very scarce.
