Abstract

Surveillance of wild animal diseases is essential to control the health risks for domestic animals, humans and wild animals themselves. In order to optimise resources available for surveillance programmes, prioritisation works have been done in the past in Europe to identify pathogens to be targeted but none on wild birds. However, wild birds have biological features allowing the fast spread of pathogens over long distances and their transmission to several targets, making them an important animal class to consider in wildlife disease surveillance programmes.
