Angelica Virtucio No Bats in the Belfry Case Study Part 1 – The Basic Question Questions: 1. What is the basic question of this study and why is it interesting? The basic question of this study is where did WNS originate from, how bats become infecting and transmit P. destructans. This is interesting because you learn where fungus originated. Also, it’s interesting because you are able to understand more of the bats life. 2. What specific testable hypotheses can you develop to explain the observations and answer the basic question of this study? Write at least two alternative hypotheses. Hypothesis #1: If one takes away the fungus, then you can prevent the chances of harmful diseases. Hypothesis #2: If a bat becomes infected and is in direct contact with the fungus, then the bat will get WNS.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
