The increased incidence of extreme weather events is likely to have serious effects on populations of tree‐roosting bats, particularly endemic species on tropical islands. , 1994). , 2012). , 2006, 2008) it is surprising that there are so few recorded instances of virus‐related mortality, in contrast to the devastating effects of the cold‐adapted fungus Pseudogymnoascus destructans, known as white nose syndrome (Reeder & Moore, 2013). Even in this case, it is not the fungus itself which is the direct cause of mortality but starvation caused by frequent arousals from hibernation and consequent depletion of fat reserves (Reeder & Moore, 2013).
