Bird flu research. Artwork of wild birds tagged with radio transmitters to allow researchers to record and study their migration patterns. This has helped ascertain whether avian influenza (bird flu) is spread by wild birds or by international poultry trade. The research showed that it was more likely that the virus was being spread by poultry being transported around the world. An example is the H5N1 influenza A virus, an outbreak of which spread to humans in Hong Kong in 1997.
