Avian influenza viruses in wild birds: A moving target

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

49 Scopus citations


The long-standing evolutionary and ecological relationships between wild birds and influenza A viruses has created a broad pool of viral genetic diversity and a reservoir of potentially transmissible viruses. An understanding of these relationships can help us identify and modify critical control points to reduce transmission of avian influenza viruses into animal and human populations.
