White-nose Syndrome in bats is a fungal disease that has substantially reduced bat populations in North America. As novel fungal pathogens continue to emerge, scientists must work to develop techniques to reduce their impact on natural and man-made ecosystems. White-nose Syndrome in North American bat species serves as an example of the tremendous impact fungal pathogens can have on region biodiversity, wildlife health and agricultural productivity.
While the event is free, attendees are asked to pre-register, if possible.
