Effects of snake fungal disease on short-term survival, behavior, and movement in free-ranging snakes

Steven Price, Jennifer McKenzie, Grant Connette, Simon Bonner & Jeffrey Lorch
Pathogenic fungi are increasingly associated with epidemics in wildlife populations. Snake fungal disease (SFD) is an emerging threat to snakes, taxa that are elusive and difficult to sample. Thus, assessments of the impacts of SFD on populations have rarely occurred. We used a field technique to enhance detection, Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) telemetry, and a multistate capture-mark-recapture model to assess SFD effects on short-term (within-season) survival, movement, and surface activity of two wild snake species,...
