Social Bats More Likely To Pay Higher Price From White-nose Syndrome
2012-07-04 08:13:54

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online New studies conducted by biologists at University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) show that the effects of white-nose syndrome, a deadly bat disease, may be worse in bat colonies who are increasingly social during hibernation. The study found that bat species that tend to cluster together during hibernation, even with declining populations, would continue to spread white-nose syndrome. In 2006, white-nose syndrome made a dramatic...
