Facts on File

Influenzavirus A, or avian influenza (also known as bird flu), which originated in Asia, has steadily made its way to new countries as a result of commerce. This well-timed resource goes beyond the headlines in explaining the potentially devastating impact including illness, death, and deformity of invasive viruses, bacteria, protists, and fungi. This book evaluates scenarios for success in the escalating battle for containment.
