*Horizontal rules represent grouping of IAVs isolated from similar host species; groups of host species are ordered chronologically according to the first detection of H3 IAVs in each of those species, and viruses of each species are ordered chronologically according to the time point at which the corresponding lineages first arose. IAV, influenza A virus; N. Am., North American.
