I'm interest in ERVs as evidence for evolution and want to learn more about them.
The Sverdlov book is from 2005, and much work has been done in the 15 years after that. Here's a more recent review article with many useful references: Escalera-Zamudio M, Greenwood AD. On the classification and evolution of endogenous retrovirus: humanendogenous retroviruses may not be ‘human’ after all. APMIS 2016; 124: 44–51. PMID: 26818261 DOI: 10.1111/apm.12489
Hope you find this answer helpful.
