Jordi Figuerola Borras: Scientific Tenure at Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC). His research activities in recent years has focused on studying the mechanisms that promote and/or restrict local and long distance dispersal of plants, invertebrates and pathogens by waterfowl. Work with parasites has focused on different groups of blood parasites and pathogens, mainly Protozoa blood and West Nile virus and Influenza in wild birds. He has published over 80 articles in journals covered by SCI, 19 popular science articles, 12 book chapters and 1 book (see Since 2006 he had been project leader of 9 projects on West Nile virus, Influenza and dispersal of toxic algae by waterfowl.

Seroconversion in Wild Birds and Local Circulation of West Nile Virus, Spain

A serosurvey for neutralizing antibodies against West Nile virus (WNV) in common coots (Fulica atra) was conducted in Doñana, Spain. Antibody prevalence was highest in 2003, intermediate in 2004, and lowest in 2005. Some birds seroreverted <1 year after first capture. Seroconversion of birds suggests local circulation of the virus.
