  From introduction: Each year's flu vaccine contains three flu strains -- two A strains and one B strain -- that can change from year to year: 1) After vaccination, your body produces infection-fighting antibodies against the three flu strains in the vaccine; 2) If you are exposed to any of the three flu strains during the flu season, the antibodies will latch onto the virus' HA antigens, preventing the flu virus from attaching to healthy cells and infecting them; 3) Influenza virus genes, made o...

  From introduction: The genetic change that enables a flu strain to jump from one animal species to another, including humans, is called antigenic shift. Antigenic shift can happen in three ways. Antigentic 1: a) A duck or other aquatic bird passes a bird strain of influenza A to an intermediate host such as a chicken or pig; b) A person passes a human strain of influenza A to the same chicken or pig; c) When the viruses infect the same cell, the genes from the bird strain mix with genes from the...

Alaska Science Center (U.S.), David & Lucile Packard Foundation, Point Reyes Bird Observatory (PRBO)
  From web site introduction: The Alaska Science Center, PRBO Conservation Science (PRBO), and collaborators in various countries received funding from The David and Lucile Packard Foundation for an international, collaborative study using the latest remote sensing technology to fill key information gaps on how the tribe Numeniini, to which godwits and curlews belong, migrate within and across continents. During 2007-2008, four species (Bar-tailed Godwit, Hudsonian Godwit, Bristle-thighed Curlew, ...

B Karesh, National Institutes of Health (U.S.). Emergency Preparedness and Biodefense Interest Group
  From abstract: The Emergency Preparedness and Biodefense Interest Group. Dr. Karesh heads the field veterinary program of the Wildlife Conservation Society, which has over 300 field projects in 50 countries around the world. His teams of veterinarians study the health status of free-ranging wildlife populations, focusing on the risk of transfer of infectious agents among wild and domestic animals and humans. WCS staff have been especially active in monitoring the spread of Ebola virus in Gabon a...
