Our team continues to work to understand how naturally occurring micro-organisms on bat wings can be used to help reduce the effects of the invasive, introduced fungal species that causes white-nose syndrome in bats.
Biologists get creative as B.C.'s old growth forests vanish. The endangered northern myotis bat needs all the help it can get, as its habitat shrinks and a deadly fungal disease looms. In the province's heavily logged inland temperate rainforest, artificial old-growth trees could provide shelter- for now. Photo Louis Bockner/The Narwhal
