New paper! "Endemicity of chytridiomycosis features pathogen overdispersion"

New paper by Laura Grogan on infection state transition dynamics and the role of pathogen overdispersion in chytridiomycosis! The summary and link are below. Grogan, L. F., Phillott, A. D., Scheele, B. C., Berger, L., Cashins, S. D., Bell, S. C., Puschendorf, R., and Skerratt, L. F. (2016). Endemicity of chytridiomycosis features pathogen overdispersion. Journal of Animal Ecology (online early; doi: 10.1111/1365-2656.12500) (link). SUMMARY: 1. Pathogens can be critical drivers of the abundance and distribution of wild animal populations. The presence of an overdispersed pathogen load distribution between hosts (where few hosts harbour heavy parasite burdens and light infections are common) c
