White-nose syndrome (WNS) caused by the fungal pathogen Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd) has decimated hibernating bat populations across North America since it was first detected in 2006 near Albany, NY. As Pd has spread across North America, infection dynamics and mortality from WNS have varied among species and across sites. The mechanisms behind vulnerability of species across the current and expanding range of Pd spread remain unclear. Quantifying spatial patterns of WNS impact and identifying environmental predictors of vulnerability of bat species to WNS will inform management response by recognizing geographic areas and species most at risk from WNS.
