Talk:Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus
|WikiProject Viruses||(Rated NA-class)|
Can anyone tell me the symptoms a rabbit with this disease would show?
I have proposed a merger with Rabbit calicivirus. Both articles cover the same organism, but differ greatly in content: RHDV contains more biochemical information, while RCV contains more information about applications and the associated disease. However, I'm not sure which term is more prominent, so I'm not sure which page should remain. If there are no serious objections within a week or two, I'll effect the merger. Feel free to leave comments here. Cheers. – Liveste 06:16, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
- Copied over from the talk page for Rabbit calicivirus.
- I definitely agree with the merger. I had no idea that the article Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus existed. As far as the name, the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses uses Rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus, but I'm also OK with the American spelling. A second alternative is to just name the article Rabbit hemorrhagic disease and have it be about the disease and the virus. My personal opinion is that this is the preferred approach when the virus is named after the disease, as it is in this case. However, if we were going with Rabbit calicivirus, I would keep that name and not call it Rabbit calicivirus disease. So I say merge it into a single article called Rabbit hemorrhagic disease. --Joelmills 15:57, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
