Infectious Diseases of Wild Mammals and Birds in Europe
The team tested three hypotheses to clarify whether relatedness, sociality, or diet containing birds and hence potential direct influenza A exposure were driving the observed diversity and prevalence. Relatedness could be expected to have a major effect as the receptors and physiology among related species is more similar and therefore viruses should have an easier time infecting related species.

However, the results suggested this did not play a role in the observations. Sociality might be expected to play a role if animals in herds in particular would quickly spread a virus unlike animals that are largely solitary.
However, this did not appear to be a driving force either as many social herbivores had no or low influenza exposure. Influenza A viruses are among the best studied and most important zoonotic pathogens in terms of human and domestic animal health.
The viruses are typically associated with wild waterfowl and regularly jump into mammals including humans. The transmission between birds and mammals often results in adaptation of the virus to the new mammal host.

The study was carried out in Namibia where mammalian species diversity is high, waterfowl known to carry influenza are resident, domestic animals and wild animals intermingle on farms and major waterfowl migratory routes transect the country making the results significant beyond Namibia and perhaps beyond Africa.
