The paper was developed during a 2-day workshop on extreme competence held at Deakin University early 2018, that Drs. Laura Grogan and Alison Peel from our team attended.

Our PhD candidate, Eloise Stephenson, teamed up with researchers at the University of Sydney and University of Tasmania to write an article on how Australian wildlife spread and supress Ross River virus. Ross River virus is a significant public health challenge in Australia, and treating humans alone is not enough to stop the spread of the virus altogether. We need complimentary strategies to reduce Ross River virus transmission and animal ecology may be an important piece of the puzzle. For zoo...
