Abstract : The epidemiology of H5N1 HPAI is still unclear despite the efforts of the research community. Studies bringing new insights add more variability in the host-pathogen system and uncertainty in the prediction of local risks. Global analyses of the pathways of wild birds in parallel with virus outbreaks have brought limited conclusions once the raw information was extracted from relevant maps. In this article, we propose an integration of epidemiology, evolutionary biology and community ecology on a local level in a research framework. This multidisciplinary approach aims at understanding the pathogen transmission processes at the interface between different bird groups whether wild or domesticated. We believe that this ecological data brought together with the epidemiological and molecular data is a key element to explore the mechanism of the AIV ecology in their hosts. (Résumé d'auteur)
