  • An unusual abundance of Salmonella infections was studied in an island population of a wild marsupial, the quokka (Setonix brachyurus), which experiences starvation in summer associated with significant mortality. The frequency of infections was found to vary seasonally over most parts of the island, with high infection rates (70 to 100%) in summer and low infection rates (0 to 30%) in winter. In some samples, there was an average of as many as two isolations per animal, and up to five… CONTINUE READING
