White Nose Syndrome

Post by p4cifico » Tue Mar 02, 2010 12:14 am

For those of you who know what this is, or are interested in it; why are we spending so much time worrying where it came from and containment when it was already spread from New York to the Midwest and even into Europe. We obviosly can't contain this fungus, so why don't we work on some type of antibiotic or resistance gene for these bats?

Perhaps where it came from will yield some information on what kept it in check previously and could aid any effort to control this fungus. Like a lot of science you don't necessarily know until you find out....

but on the topic does anyone have any good info on this fungus? or is a wiki/google search as good as anything else?
