Enveloped viruses

Post by myrwen » Thu Mar 29, 2007 9:42 pm

Does anyone know of enveloped viruses that attack anything other than animal cells, such as plants or anything else?
This question came up in my Microbio class today and I'm searching for info...
I'm not trying to get anyone to do my homework, I just want to learn more...
Thanks for any info...KW :D
