Today's issue of Current Biology includes a special section "The Microbial World". My contribution to the section looks into the effects of climate change on the ecology of pathogens. Amphibians are the canaries in the coalmine for this one, as they don't control their body temperature and changes in environmental temperature make them vulnerable to fungal infections that are already causing extinctions. But potentially climate-induced human diseases are also being investigated.

(Actually, it is open right now as part of the special issue, but I suspect that this will change once the next issue appears in two weeks time. In that case, it will become open access again one year after publication)
