Notes :

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.
