dc.descriptionSummary note (B. Rideout): This collaborative study made use of hummingbird specimens from our facilities (primarily cases of window collision trauma). The study is the first to provide baseline disease prevalence data for wild hummingbirds and the first to document an intestinal adenovirus infection in any hummingbird species. Baseline data in this study will be important for future population monitoring as climate change alters the distribution of pathogens and their vectors, as well as the timing of plant flowering during migration and breeding.
dc.description.abstractA histopathologic study of free-ranging hummingbirds in California was performed to identify mortality trends. Tissues from 61 wild hummingbirds representing five native California species collected by the San Diego Zoo from 1996 to 2016 or the Lindsay Wildlife Experience from 2015 to 2017 were histologically examined....
