Abstract:
Historically, Avian Influenza (AI) has caused significant epidemics in both animals and humans throughout the world. Due to the ability of the AI virus to mutate and adapt to new conditions and species it is still a significant threat today. Research papers and reports on AI have been collected from numerous databases and have been placed into eight different groups to facilitate locating papers on particular subjects or interests. These groups are: Control/Prevention/Vaccines; Epidemics/Reviews/Reports; General; Pathology/Pathogenesis; Research; Tests/Detection/Diagnosis; Virus Typing/Characterization; Web Pages and Zoonoses. It is hoped this publication will be of use to researchers, public health officials, veterinarians and the general public so as to better understand and deal with the Avian Influenza virus and the threat it poses to public and animal health.
