UW Research Associate Colleen Burge is quoted in a November 2014 Seattle Times article on the connection between climate change and ocean disease outbreaks in sea life. In the article As climate warms, more outbreaks of disease for sea life, journalist Craig Welch explores how rising sea temperatures may affect disease susceptibility and transmission in sea life ranging from dolphins and sea stars to coral, eelgrass, and seals. Burge is quoted several times on the challenges and complexity of understanding how disease in sea life will respond to changing environments.
