but gull-flu is usually distant from the bird-(mallard-)-amino-acid index in the inner segments
and won't go back to mallards to create new strains that survive for long. It drives away from that index and eventually dies, so I think gulls don't play a major role in longterm intercontinental flu-evolution, which is led by mallards.
