We studied the interlayer magnetoresistance of the representative quasi-one-dimensional (Q1D) layered organic conductor, (TMTSF)2PF6, over the full range of magnetic field orientations in three dimensions, and constructed a stereographic conductivity plot. Our results show that the previously reported angular-dependent magnetoresistance phenomena in Q1D conductors are closely related to one another in intermediate field orientations. Based on a comparison with theories, we can conclude that the Lebed resonance is the only fundamental effect and that other effects result from the modulation of the Lebed resonance amplitude. Most of the observed phenomena can be explained within the framework of the conventional Fermi liquid; however, the anomalous enhancement of the interlayer conductivity under a field parallel to the conducting planes suggests the existence of a new electron state.
