Sexual transmission of Ebola virus could have a major impact on the dynamics of the disease, potentially re-igniting an outbreak that has been contained by public health interventions, according to research by University of Georgia ecologists just published in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters.
Atmospherically transported dust from north Africa’s Sahara Desert provides pulses of biologically important nutrients, including iron, to the tropical marine waters of the Caribbean and southeastern U.S. Researchers from UGA have found that Vibrio bacteria respond rapidly to this influx , leading to large blooms of the potentially harmful bacteria in ocean surface water.
