2-19) Neoplasms of lymphoid origin have been described in birds from the following orders: Anseriformes, Charadriiformes, Columbiformes, Ciconiiformes, Galliformes, Passeriformes, Psittaciformes, and Struthioniformes.
Study species were selected among bird families recognized as major AIV reservoirs (notably among the orders Anseriformes and Charadriiformes), in both Eurasian and Afro-tropical bird communities.
AIVs have been isolated in 12 bird orders, but most isolations have been reported in the orders Anseriformes (in particular in the family Anatidae: ducks, swans, geese) and Charadriiformes (shore birds, gulls, terns).
Free-living birds in the orders Anseriformes (ducks, geese, swans) and Charadriiformes (gulls, terns, shore birds) have traditionally been considered the natural reservoirs for avian influenza viruses (AIVs) (1,2).
