    About This Project

    Bats exposed to the deadly fungal agent causing white nose syndrome exhibit a unique fluorescence under long wave ultra violet light. We seek to compare these bats with those who have not been exposed to this disease to establish ultra violet light as an accurate and non-lethal field tool for assessing bat exposure to white nose syndrome.
