This little tidbit was spotted on Boston.com. As written, it suggests that white-nose fungus is the head of microbiology at the Wildlife Health Center:

But David Blehert, who identified the white-nose fungus as head of microbiology at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Wildlife Health Center, said summer spreading is not a concern with this fungus, which needs cold to thrive. Blehert and other researchers said that given the magnitude of the problem, it makes sense to at least test the hypothesis.

Who knew fungus was so talented?
