Current Pilot Program Underway, Set to Expand Statewide
Newly published paper addresses transmission of the pathogen Bsal and how mathematical models are used to predict how the pathogen would spread among eastern newts.
MS student and Tennessee Aquarium employee Shawna Fix explains how studying the life history of a closely related species gives scientists more information on the endangered Laurel Dace. Listen to…
In this episode of Step Outside, David Carter and Adri Tompros discuss their research on Bsal, a recently discovered pathogen that eats away at amphibian skin. Bsal has been found across Europe, and Davis and Adri are part of a concerted effort to prevent further spread and transmission in the US.
Professors Matt Gray and Deb Miller’s work in the Amphibian Disease Lab centers on preventing the spread of an amphibian pathogen, Bsal, to the United States. Bsal is currently spreading across Europe, and many fear that international pet trade will bring pathogen here. With the Appalachian region being a hotspot for salamander diversity, the Miller-Gray Lab is focused on prevention, detection, and transmission pathways for the pathogen.
In this episode, PhD student Doug Mitchell explains how replacing fescue with native warm-season grasses could benefit bobwhite populations across the Southeast.
In this episode of “Step Outside,” masters student Brittany Panos tells us how plating agricultural fields with cover crops, instead of allowing them to fallow, many benefit many bird species.
In this episode of “Step Outside,” we learn about spring staging and fall swarming of two white-nose syndrome-sensitive bat species. Our special guest is graduate student Malloy Tate, who tells…
