FLI is the leading German institution in animal health. It has contacts to German authorities and wildlife associations. The established databases at FLI for classical swine fever (European database on classical swine fever in wild boar), avian influenza (German AI-DB, FP6 New FluBird database), rabies (WHO Rabies database for Europe – Rabies Bulletin Europe) and echinococcosis (research database), which already contain wildlife population-related data and ecological parameters, will be extended for data obtained by the other partners. FLI coordinates the network “Rodent-borne pathogens” in Germany, which will be highly beneficial for the APHAEA project.
