Abstract: Using global case data for the period from25 November 2003 to 10 March 2007, we construct a timeseries of the number of outbreaks for the spread of avianinfluenza among domestic and wild birds. The correlationsof these spread patterns are reflected in a power-law scal-ing of this property. The temporal dynamic of the spreadof influenza is further investigated with a standard non-linear time series analysis tool. We suggest that the dy-namic underlying the spread of avian influenza is not low-dimensional and hence, characterized by short term unpre-dictability.
