Avian vacuolar myelinopathy (AVM) is a newly discovered bird disease, which is killing bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) and waterfowl in the southeastern United States. Surveys were conducted to investigate exotic macrophytes (e.g. Hydrilla verticillata) as a substrate for attachment by toxic cyanobacteria that may be associated with the incidence of AVM. While the specific cause of the disease has not been confirmed, one hypothesis is that birds ingest a neurotoxin produced by… CONTINUE READING
