Alexandra Z. Worden, UGA Ecology PhD ’00, was featured on the podcast This Week in Virology discussing giant viruses that infect ocean hosts.
Stable isotope analysis of specimens from natural history museums can provide insights into potential impacts of future environmental change.
Researchers associated with the UGA Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases have received a $1.6 million grant from the National Science Foundation to investigate the relationships between habitat characteristics, human activity and disease transmission for two tropical diseases: cutaneous leishmaniasis and Chagas disease.
A harmful parasite is able to maintain high levels of infection in resident populations of monarch butterflies by using more than one transmission strategy, according to research from the UGA Odum School of Ecology.
Patches of standing water that are close together are more likely to be used by mosquitoes to lay eggs in than patches that are farther apart, which could lead to more disease transmission in those areas, according to a new study from the University of Georgia.
