Call for Committee Nominations for a Study of Brucellosis in Yellowstone

The National Research Council is calling for nominations of committee members to serve on a study of brucellosis in the Greater Yellowstone Area (GYA). The study will evaluate available information on the prevalence and spread of the disease and examine the feasibility, time-frame, and cost-effectiveness of options to contain or suppress it. Brucellosis, which is caused by a bacteria, can spread from wildlife to cattle that graze on land in or adjacent to it and can be transmitted by cattle to other species, including humans.  Expertise is needed in all areas related to the issue. To identify an expert, please fill in this easy-to-use nomination form.
