Ecological conditions predict the intensity of Hendra virus excretion over space and time from bat reservoir hosts

Daniel Becker, Peggy Eby, Wyatt Madden, Alison Peel & Raina Plowright
The ecological conditions experienced by wildlife reservoirs affect infection dynamics and thus the distribution of pathogen excreted into the environment, which have been hypothesized to shape risks of zoonotic spillover. However, few systems have data on both long-term ecological conditions and pathogen excretion to advance mechanistic understanding and test environmental drivers of spillover risk. We here analyze three years of Hendra virus data from nine Australian flying fox roosts with covariates derived from long-term studies...
