Resumen

UHART, Marcela; KARESH, William  y  SMITH, Kristine. Lessons learned from avian flu. Hornero [online]. 2008, vol.23, n.2, pp.61-66. ISSN 0073-3407.

Avian flu, mainly natural to wild waterfowl, became famous in 2006 with the growing threat of a pandemic driven by the highly pathogenic strain H5N1. Even though the feared pandemic has not yet occurred, a succession of events and neglects contribute to an ongoing stage of risk. Avian influenza viruses are one of many pathogens which under appropriate conditions can affect the health of wildlife, humans, and domestic animals, as well as conservation, agriculture, food security, and the overall health of ecosystems. Avian influenza is a global disease, which overcame species and geographical barriers, favoured by the lack of action. We would hope that avian influenza has taught us that an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.

Palabras clave : avian flu; conservation; pandemic; pathogens; prevention; wild birds.
