- Coral Disease and Health Workshop: Coral Histopathology II (PDF)
The coral histopathology workshop was convened to establish a framework to systematically study coral pathologies by drawing upon the field of diagnostic medicine and pathology while using generally accepted nomenclature. The report contains a description of a study set of histology slides used in reaching consensus histopathological descriptions for selected coral lesions representing 15 types of field diagnosis, 9 presumed disease conditions, and 8 scleractinian and 1 gorgonian species. Supportive information was developed during the group discussions and is provided in the report: coral anatomy descriptions and figures, a description of the approach to coral tissue histopathological examination, a recommended format for describing the histology and histopathology of coral tissue, and a glossary of coral anatomy and histopathology terms with relevant references.

- An Early Detection System for Highly Pathogenic H5N1 in Wild Migratory Birds - Interagency Strategic Plan
Avian influenza (AI) is a type A influenza virus that is naturally found in certain species of waterfowl and shorebirds. However, the occurrence of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) subtype highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza has raised concern regarding the potential impact on wild birds, domestic poultry, and human health should it be introduced into the United States (U.S.).
