Main research activities are actually performed in order to understand the epidemiological role of wild bird and wild boar populations, in maintaining and spreading some infectious diseases shared with humans and domestic animals. Wild aquatic birds are considered the natural reservoir of influenza A infection, harbouring viruses belonging to all the 16 hemagglutinin and the 9 neuraminidase subtypes. In particular, wild ducks provide most of the gene pool from which all influenza A viruses in both human and animal populations originate. Evidence of fatal cases of influenza directly transmitted from birds to humans ( H5N1, H7N7, H9N2) and occurrence of catastrophic influenza epidemics in domestic avian species emphasise the importance of epidemiological studies in reservoir species. Therefore, resident and migrant populations of wild waterfowl trapped in Italian wetlands are monitored by both serological and virological exams in order to assess the dynamic of this infection in free-living populations: a constant circulation of influenza viruses has been demonstrated during consecutive winter seasons. Moreover, wild bird species belonging to Passeriformes and Galliformes order are monitored in order to assess their possible role of ecological interface between wild reservoirs and domestic avian species. Finally, as the domestic pig has a special ecological role, harbouring infections of viruses of both human and avian origin, the epidemiological implication of the wild boar in the influenza natural cycle is investigated. Avian paramyxovirus (PMV) infections can cause heavy economic losses in poultry. For this reason wild avian species are examined by both serological and virological assays, in particular to evaluate the circulation of the avian PMV1,cause of Newcastle Disease (List A of O.I.E.). Moreover experimental trial have been performed in order to evaluatethe risck of reintroduction of vaccinated birds during the restocking  programs.
