Bat and Virus Ecology in a Dynamic World

The March 2017 issue of Microbiology Australia features an "Under the Microscope" article by IDReC researchers David Wilkinson and David Hayman. Understanding of ecological relationships leading up to viral spillover can potentially help reduce the threat of emerging virus both in Australia and elsewhere. In the article, they present a review of the potential impacts of anthropogenic changes such as land-use change, habitat loss and introduced species and how these factors impact bat-viral ecology in Australia.
