Spatial dynamics and population impacts of disease in threatened amphibians

Scheele, Benjamin


Globally, amphibians are the most endangered vertebrate taxon, with over one third of species at risk of extinction. A prominent driver of this extinction crisis is the disease chytridiomycosis, which is caused by the fungal pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd). Bd has been implicated in major amphibian declines in Australia, Europe and the Americas. In this thesis, I investigated; (1) the spatial distribution of Bd and its impacts on amphibian species in Australia and Europe, and (2)...[Show more]
