The role of wild birds in transmission of avian influenza - a comment to the paper of K Steiof and to the current avian influenza discussion Die Rolle von Wildvoegeln bei der Uebertragung der Gefluegelpest - ein Kommentar zum Beitrag von K Steiof and zur gegenwaertigen Vogelgrippe-Diskussion


, : The role of wild birds in transmission of avian influenza - a comment to the paper of K Steiof and to the current avian influenza discussion Die Rolle von Wildvoegeln bei der Uebertragung der Gefluegelpest - ein Kommentar zum Beitrag von K Steiof and zur gegenwaertigen Vogelgrippe-Diskussion. Berichte zum Vogelschutz, 42: 33-42

The statements presented here were triggered by the argumentation in K. Steiof's article on Avian Influenza (AI). I particularly emphasize why it is very likely that AI could have been transmitted both via transport of poultry, poultry products and wastes, on the one hand, and via wild birds, on the other. It is acknowledged that current explanations which assign a major role to wild birds in transmitting the disease are sometimes very sketchy or even scientifically unsound. But the counter argument which denies any role of wild birds in spreading AI is also very inconclusive. In particular, there is so far no clear evidence demonstrating the role of the poultry industry in the spread of the virus in Central Europe.
