The contemporary concepts on the different ways of variation in viruses are analyzed. It is shown that the virus can acquire new traits when a number of strains are multiplying together, when adapting to a new host organism, and when multiplying in an immune organism. It is assumed that as far as their antigenic structure is concerned, the influenza viruses of animals are stable secondary derivatives of the human strains.
