Opportunistic bacteria and mass mortality in ungulates: lessons from an extreme event

Abstract:

Mass mortality events in wildlife are a growing concern. Under conditions of rapid global change, opportunistic responses in bacterial commensals, triggered by environmental stressors, may be increasingly implicated in die-offs. In 2015, over 200,000 saiga antelope died of hemorrhagic septicemia caused by the pathogen Pasteurella multocida serotype B. We use this case to explore die-offs from commensal bacteria more broadly, looking at factors which might favor such extreme events. We review ...
