Data from: Transfer of maternal antibodies against avian influenza virus in mallards (Anas platyrhynchos)

Jacintha G. B. Van Dijk, A. Christa Mateman & Marcel Klaassen
Maternal antibodies protect chicks from infection with pathogens early in life and may impact pathogen dynamics due to the alteration of the proportion of susceptible individuals in a population. We investigated the transfer of maternal antibodies against avian influenza virus (AIV) in a key AIV host species, the mallard (Anas platyrhynchos). Combining observations in both the field and in mallards kept in captivity, we connected maternal AIV antibody concentrations in eggs to (i) female body...
