  title={Migratory Birds as Vectors for Influenza Dispersal},
  author={Marcel Klaassen},
Migratory birds are looked upon with suspicion now that H5N1 is rapidly spreading across the globe. To increase our understanding of the problem this short communication seeks to provide ecological information on bird migration. It will address questions like: what is it that actually makes birds migrate? How far may they fly? Why do waterfowl receive the most attention as a vector for avian influenza dispersal?
