These data (in two spreadsheets) are the results of screening for influenza A viruses (IAV) in blood from wild animals that utilize the Arctic region of Alaska. 758 blood samples from nine wildlife species (3 mammal, 6 waterbird) were collected in Arctic Alaska, 2011-2017. Two different tests were used and the results are presented in separate spreadsheets. All blood samples were screened for IAV antibodies using a blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (bELISA). A subsample of 63 blood samples were screened by hemagglutination inhibition (HI) assays to identify hemagglutinin (HA) subtype-specific antibodies for comparison among taxa.
