Grant et al. Proactive Management paper in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment

Sampling Eastern newts in Massachusetts with Evan Grant and USGS team.

Evan Grant and colleagues advocate using decision analysis to create and evaluate trade-offs between proactive (pre-emergence) and reactive (post-emergence) management options for the newly discovered salamander pathogen Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal). The Woodhams lab continues to collaborate with Grant at the US Geological Survey on disease threats to New England amphibians.
