Adler and Colleagues Study Disease Transmission at Flowers

Biology professor Lynn Adler and postdoctoral researcher Scott McArt have identified more than 800 studies on plant and animal pathogens in the hopes to learn more about this understudied area. According to Adler and McArt, not much is known about the transmission of these pathogens. Because of this lack of knowledge, the purpose of the paper is to bring attention to this area of research in order to learn how this transmission occurs between these plants and animals.
