This presentation by Susi von Oettingen, Endangered Species Biologist with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, is an update on the status of White-Nose Syndrome, a fungal disease affecting winter hibernating bats in the US, with an emphasis on the impact to NH species. There will be a quick review of NH bats, the species and their life histories, and also the current status of the disease and its implications for the future of bats in NH. A description of the disease, species affected, range expansion, research studies underway, and investigations into treatment, will be included.
