Data from: Use of environmental sites by mule deer: a proxy for relative risk of chronic wasting disease exposure and transmission

María Fernanda Mejía-Salazar, Cheryl L. Waldner, Yeen Ten Hwang & Trent K. Bollinger
Prions that cause chronic wasting disease (CWD) in cervids can remain infective for years outside the host. Infectious cervids shed prions for a long time, consequently depositing prions in frequently used areas. These environmental prions are important in CWD epidemiology. Unfortunately, effective tools for quantifying CWD prions in soil, water, and other environmental sources are not currently available. Our goal was to investigate relative differences in visits by mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus hemionus) to various...
