Highly Pathogenic Bird Flu Identified in Dead Florida Dolphin

A Florida bottlenose dolphin was found to have avian flu in a historic case studied by researchers at the University of Florida and other agencies, highlighting the risks of cross-species transmission of the virus.

Researchers have documented the first North American case of avian flu in a cetacean in a Florida dolphin, highlighting the need for continued research into this cross-disease.

A species is a group of living organisms that share a common set of characteristics and are capable of reproducing and producing fertile offspring. The species concept is important in biology because it is used to classify and organize the diversity of life. There are different ways to define a species, but the most widely accepted is the biological species concept, which defines a species as a group of organisms capable of interbreeding and producing viable offspring in nature. This definition is widely used in evolutionary biology and ecology to identify and classify living organisms.
