    • Amphibians acquire resistance to live and dead fungus overcoming fungal immunosuppression 

      McMahon, Taegan A.; Sears, Brittany; Venesky, Matthew D.; Bessler, Scott; Brown, Jenise; Deutsch, Kaitlin; Halstead, Neal; Lentz, Garrett; Tenouri, Nadia; Young, Suzanne; Civitello, David J.; Ortega, Nicole; Fites, J. Scott; Reinert, Laura (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-07-09)
      Emerging fungal pathogens pose a greater threat to biodiversity than any other parasitic group, causing declines of many taxa, including bats, corals, bees, snakes and amphibians. Currently, there is little evidence that ...
    • Impacts of thermal mismatches on chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis prevalence are moderated by life stage, body size, elevation and latitude 

      Cohen, Jeremy M.; McMahon, Taegan A.; Ramsay, Chloe; Roznik, Elizabeth A.; Sauer, Erin L.; Bessler, Scott; Civitello, David J.; Delius, Bryan K.; Halstead, Neal; Knutie, Sarah A.; Nguyen, Karena H.; Ortega, Nicole; Sears, Brittany; Venesky, Matthew D.; Young, Suzanne; Rohr, Jason R. (Wiley, 2019-02-28)
      Global climate change is increasing the frequency of unpredictable weather conditions; however, it remains unclear how species‐level and geographic factors, including body size and latitude, moderate impacts of unusually ...
    • A meta‐analysis reveals temperature, dose, life stage, and taxonomy influence host susceptibility to a fungal parasite 

      Sauer, Erin L.; Cohen, Jeremy M.; Lajeunesse, Marc J.; McMahon, Taegan A.; Civitello, David J.; Knutie, Sarah A.; Nguyen, Karena; Roznik, Elizabeth A.; Sears, Brittany F.; Bessler, Scott; Delius, Bryan K.; Halstead, Neal; Ortega, Nicole; Venesky, Matthew D.; Young, Suzanne; Rohr, Jason R. (Wiley, 2020-01-21)
      Complex ecological relationships, such as host–parasite interactions, are often modeled with laboratory experiments. However, some experimental laboratory conditions, such as temperature or infection dose, are regularly ...
