Abstract
Little quarititative information is available concerning the pH and heat stability of African swine fever virus (ASFV), although Coggins (1966) has recently provided some data on its heat inactivation. Qualitative reports (~fontgomery, 1921; Botija, 1962; Kovalenko et aI., 1965) indicate that the stability of the infectivity is high within a wide range of physico. chemical environments (see Scott, 1965). TIlls paper describes experiments which have been' performed to yield quantitative data for several strains of virus in the laboratory and, incidentally, to give some indication of their probable resistance under field conditions.
