How European hibernating bats cope with white-nose syndrome which kills millions of North American bats
The plague is one of the biggest scourges of mankind, which killed about a quarter of the European population in the 14th century. How did it come to a stop? An international team of researchers led by Ben Krause-Kyora from the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology (IKMB) at Kiel University in Germany (CAU) has now uncovered a mechanism that, among other factors, may have contributed to the end of the second pandemic.

Many of these plant pathogens also affect important food and medicinal plants, which is likely to have a long-term impact on the world population’s food security. This is the result of an experimental study published in the journal Nature Climate Change with significant contribution by researchers from the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), Leipzig University (UL) and Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU).
