The White-Nose Syndrome Transcriptome: Activation of Anti-fungal Host Responses in Wing Tissue of Hibernating Little Brown Myotis
White-nose syndrome (WNS) in North American bats is caused by an invasive cutaneous infection by the psychrophilic fungus Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd). We compared transcriptome-wide changes inExpand

Seasonal and Geographic Trends in Acoustic Detection of Tree-Roosting Bats
Migratory routes, timing, and behavior are some of the least studied facets of bat biology, and possibly play roles in bat mortality rates observed at commercial wind energy facilities. We usedExpand

Social networks of Rafinesque's big-eared bats (Corynorhinus rafinesquii) in bottomland hardwood forests
Abstract Understanding social relationships and organization in colonial bat species can provide valuable insight into species ecology and potentially aid in conservation efforts of rare bat species.Expand

Effects of reproductive condition, roost microclimate, and weather patterns on summer torpor use by a vespertilionid bat
A growing number of mammal species are recognized as heterothermic, capable of maintaining a high-core body temperature or entering a state of metabolic suppression known as torpor. Small mammals canExpand

Frequent Arousals from Winter Torpor in Rafinesque’s Big-Eared Bat (Corynorhinus rafinesquii)
Extensive use of torpor is a common winter survival strategy among bats; however, data comparing various torpor behaviors among species are scarce. Winter torpor behaviors are likely to vary amongExpand

Feline Leukemia Virus in a Captive Bobcat
An 11-mo-old captive-bred male neutered bobcat (Felis rufus) presented with lethargy, anorexia, leukopenia, neutropenia, lymphopenia, and nonregenerative anemia. The animal was diagnosed as felineExpand

Migratory and winter activity of bats in Yellowstone National Park
A substantial body of work exists describing timing of migration and hibernation among bats in eastern North America, but less is known about these events among bats inhabiting the Rocky MountainExpand

Effect of torpor on host transcriptomic responses to a fungal pathogen in hibernating bats
Hibernation, the use of prolonged torpor to depress metabolism, is employed by mammals to conserve resources during extended periods of extreme temperatures and/or resource limitation. MammalianExpand

Day-Roosts of Myotis leibii in the Appalachian Ridge and Valley of West Virginia
Abstract Currently there is little known about day-roosts used by Myotis leibii (Eastern Small-footed Myotis) in the Central Appalachians. To provide insights on this species' day-roosting habits,Expand
