"Extreme Competence: Keystone Hosts of Infections" published in TREE!
Our synthesis on the sources of heterogeneity underlying extremely competent hosts (superspreaders etc.) is now online early in Trends in Ecology and Evolution (Impact Factor 15.938)! The paper was developed during a 2-day workshop on extreme competence held at Deakin University early 2018, that Dr Alison Peel and myself attended. Citation and link: Lynn B.

Funded! Awarded New Researcher Grant!
I'm excited to have been awarded $14,890 under the 2019 Griffith University New Researcher Grant Scheme for the project “A metabolomic investigation of the amphibian fungal skin disease, chytridiomycosis”! Chytridiomycosis is a fatal fungal skin disease of amphibians that has caused unprecedented species’ declines and extinctions worldwide. It is unclear why some individuals and species succumb to disease, while others can tolerate equivalent infectious burdens without detrim
