Molecular characterisation of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) in New Zealand and its implications for managing an infectious disease
Beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) infections are often fatal to both captive and wild parrot populations. Its recent discovery in a wild population of native red-fronted parakeets has raisedExpand
