On the Cover

Fluctuations in climate can powerfully affect the ecology and distribution of Vibrio bacteria. For example, a 1997 outbreak of V. parahaemolyticus infections in coastal Peru followed elevated sea surface temperatures associated with El Niño (shown in this NASA image). New studies are exploring in greater depth how elements of climate change are influencing the ecology of pathogenic vibrios.
