A Skin-Eating Fungus Threatens Salamander Species

Doctoral Students Davis Carter and Wesley Sheley will present “A Skin-Eating Fungus Threatens Salamander Species” Friday, October 22 at noon via Zoom.

A recently discovered fungal organism has caused massive die-offs in salamander species in Europe through infecting and damaging their skin. This organism has not yet been identified in North America; however, it is likely only a matter of time. In their presentation, Carter, a doctoral student in the UT Department of Forestry, Wildlife, and Fisheries, along with Wesley Sheley, a doctoral student in comparative and experimental medicine, as well as a doctor of veterinary medicine, will discuss the fungal organism and what scientists are doing to manage the fungus, if (or when) it arrives on our shores.
