Devastating. Catastrophic. Unprecedented. This is how white-nose syndrome of bats (WNS) is characterized. It is one of the deadliest wildlife diseases ever observed and could have significant impacts on outdoor recreation, agriculture and wildlife management.

Widespread Bat White-Nose Syndrome Fungus, Northeastern China
TLDR
The distribution of pathogens is necessary to identify species and populations at risk and identify sources of pathogen spillover and introduction, and once pathogen distributions are known, management actions can be taken to reduce the risk for future global spread.
Inoculation of bats with European Geomyces destructans supports the novel pathogen hypothesis for the origin of white-nose syndrome
TLDR
It is demonstrated that altered torpor-arousal cycles underlie mortality from white-nose syndrome and provide direct evidence that Gd is a novel pathogen to North America from Europe.
The Resistance of a North American Bat Species (Eptesicus fuscus) to White-Nose Syndrome (WNS)
TLDR
Findings indicate that big brown bats are resistant to White-nose Syndrome, and are not significantly different in length from those previously reported for this species.
Pathology in euthermic bats with white nose syndrome suggests a natural manifestation of immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome
TLDR
It is proposed that the sudden restoration of immune responses in bats infected with G. destructans results in an IRIS-like dysregulated immune response that causes the post-emergent pathology.
White-nose syndrome initiates a cascade of physiologic disturbances in the hibernating bat host
TLDR
A multi-stage disease progression model is proposed that mechanistically describes the pathologic and physiologic effects underlying mortality of white-nose syndrome in hibernating bats and identifies testable hypotheses for better understanding this disease.
Bacteria Isolated from Bats Inhibit the Growth of Pseudogymnoascus destructans, the Causative Agent of White-Nose Syndrome
TLDR
Results show that bacteria found naturally occurring on bats can inhibit the growth of P. destructans in vitro and should be studied further as a possible probiotic to protect bats from white-nose syndrome.
THE FUNGUS TRICHOPHYTON REDELLII SP. NOV. CAUSES SKIN INFECTIONS THAT RESEMBLE WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME OF HIBERNATING BATS
TLDR
Genetic diversity present within T. redellii suggests it is native to North America but that it had been overlooked before enhanced efforts to study fungi associated with bats in response to the emergence of WNS.
Molecular Characterization of a Heterothallic Mating System in Pseudogymnoascus destructans, the Fungus Causing White-Nose Syndrome of Bats
TLDR
The potential for sexual recombination indicates that continued vigilance is needed regarding introductions of additional isolates of this pathogen, and prompted the discovery and molecular characterization of a heterothallic mating system in isolate of P. destructans from the Czech Republic.
DNA-based detection of the fungal pathogen Geomyces destructans in soils from bat hibernacula
White-nose syndrome (WNS) is an emerging disease causing unprecedented morbidity and mortality among bats in eastern North America. The disease is characterized by cutaneous infection of hibernating
