A genus of emerging pathogens Ranavirus is thought to be the potential new culprit causing the decline and extinction of amphibians around the world. A new book by a UT professor provides insight on the viruses and guidance on urgent research directions to address them.
Ranaviruses: Lethal Pathogens of Ectothermic Vertebrates was published this month as an Open Access eBook by Springer. It is available online. The lead editor is Matthew Gray, a professor in the Department of Forestry, Wildlife, and Fisheries in the UT Institute of Agriculture.
