In particular, there is an ongoing debate regarding how Arctic rabies persists in its primary reservoir host, the Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus), which exists in the ecosystem at very low population densities.

To shed light on the mechanisms of rabies persistence in the Arctic, we built. For travelers to Antarctica, severe low temperatures and high winds are the primary health hazards.
