Abstract Plant viruses, viroids and phytoplasmas are the smallest known plant pathogens. They attract less attention than insects or fungi but are by no means less important. In Europe alone they cause hundreds of millions of Euro’s loss in yield and export. Virus diseases cannot be cured, so healthy propagation material and preventing infections are the only effective means to control these problems. To achieve this, reliable diagnostic methods and epidemiological knowledge are indispensably vital. Diagnostic methods can only be developed with sufficient knowledge on the characteristics of a virus and evaluated using well-characterized reference specimens. In addition prevention of infections evolves around knowledge on means of spread, (alternative) hosts and the spectrum of possible strains and variants of a virus
