White-nose Syndrome in Southwest Bat Populations
October 25 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
Jeff Foster is an Associate Professor at the Pathogen and Microbiome Institute at Northern Arizona University. He works on pathogen genomics and disease ecology, including work on White-Nose Syndrome in bats for over a decade. As part of this work, his team has extensively sampled bats in the West (including Arizona, California, and New Mexico) looking for infection by the White-Nose Syndrome fungus. His talk will be on the background of the disease, its recent spread into the western US, and its effects on bat populations. See more of his work on his lab website: https://fozlab.weebly.com
