White-nose Syndrome


We work on understanding the impacts of an invasive fungal pathogen, Pseudogymnoascus destructans, in hibernating bats.  White-Nose Syndrome has caused massive declines in bats species in North America, since its discovery in 2006.  Our research efforts focus on using science to inform conservation actions that can help protect bat species that have experienced major population declines in the past decade.
