White-nose Syndrome (WNS) is a deadly disease that affects hibernating bats and is caused by the cold-adapted fungus Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd). Pd can be found on the ground and substrate of cold, damp, and dark places, such as caves and other structures that are often used as winter roosts (or "hibernacula") by hibernating bats. Bats can be infected with Pd but not necessarily develop WNS. ( 4 pages)
