Special Issue "Avian Pathology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 October 2021.
Interests: avian diseases; wildlife diseases; infectious and zoonotic diseases; antimicrobial resistance
There are four main types of disease affecting avian species: metabolic and nutritional diseases, infectious diseases, parasitic diseases, and behavioral diseases. Although avian diseases from nutritional and metabolic causes can be of concern, diseases that are caused by infectious agents can exert damaging—and sometimes immediate—negative effects on the profitability of commercial operations, especially at the poultry level. Furthermore, anyone who keeps birds, whether as pets or as production animals, should be aware that certain avian diseases are zoonotic—that is, they can be transmitted to humans.
This Special Issue aims to gather innovative research on the epidemiology, diagnosis, control, and treatment of infectious and non-infectious diseases of all avian species, including domestic, wild, and companion birds. Papers on avian diseases relevant to the etiology, pathogenesis, or characterization of pathogens, innate and immune responses, antimicrobial resistance, vaccines, or genetics will also be considered.
