Abstract

Short Communication,Waterfowl were counted and sampled in a Zimbabwean wetland over 24 months. LPAI strains were detected during 20 consecutive months, providing evidence of regional yearly persistence of LPAI. We discuss the role of Afro-tropical ducks in viral maintenance and transmission, and attempt to explain the observed patterns.,French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. USAID through the Wildlife Conservation Society?s GAINS (Global Avian Influenza Network for Surveillance) program, and the South African Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
