Testing 58 wildlife species for SARS-CoV-2 among goals of $4.5M USDA grant
A team of researchers has received a $4.5 million grant to test wild animals for SARS-CoV-2 with a goal of monitoring for potential spillback to humans.

To prevent next pandemic research suggests we need to restore wildlife habit
Preserving and restoring natural habitats in specific locations could prevent pathogens that originate in wildlife from spilling over into domesticated animals and humans, according to new research led by an international team of researchers, including Penn State.

Back to black? Canine Distemper Virus outbreaks influence North American wolves’ coat colors
The further south you go, down from Arctic Canada towards the Rocky Mountains, the more black wolves you find; however, their distribution is sporadic. Why are there areas across North America where black coat coloration is common or absent within wolf populations?

Why Are There So Many Black Wolves In Yellowstone?
Historically, most wolves are grey — or white in the far north — whereas black is not a natural color amongst wolves. But Yellowstone is truly exceptional in this regard: almost half of its wolves are black.

Wolf coat color reflects immunity to canine distemper virus, new study finds
The prevalence of black wolves versus gray wolves increases southward along the Rocky Mountain crest in North America, and the reason why has long puzzled scientists. Now, a team including researchers from Penn State, has found that not only does coat color reflect an animal’s immunity to canine distemper virus (CDV), but the changes in the proportion of black wolves may be due to changes in the frequency of CDV disease outbreaks, coupled with the mating behavior of the wolves and whether they select a mate with the same or a different coat color to themselves.

Disease has influenced wolf colors across North America
Scientists have long been puzzled by the fact that, across the North American continent, wolves tend to change their coat color: while in the Arctic Canada and other northern areas wolves tend to be grey, in the south, most of them are black.

Metabolomics Core Facility continues to expand while pushing scientific bounds

Omicron-Infected Whitetail Deer Detected in New York
The first cases of whitetail deer carrying the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus have been discovered in Staten Island, New York. Researchers there report that 19 of 131 deer sampled between December 12, 2021, and Janauary 31, 2022, tested positive for the virus’ antibodies, indicating prior exposure to the coronavirus. PCR (polymerase chain reaction) nasal swab testing of 68 deer revealed that seven were actively infected, with at least four of those confirmed to be Omicron.

Deer may be reservoir for SARS-CoV-2, study finds
The findings of a study by Penn State and Iowa researchers suggest that white-tailed deer may be a reservoir for the SARS-CoV-2 virus to continually circulate, and raises concerns of emergence of new strains that may prove a threat to wildlife and, possibly, to humans.

Wolf social group dynamics matter for infectious disease spread, models suggest
By modeling wolves in Yellowstone National Park, researchers have discovered that how a population is organized into social groups affects the spread of infectious diseases within the population. The findings may be applicable to any social species and could be useful in the protection of endangered species that suffer from disease outbreaks.
