Decline and re-expansion of an amphibian with high prevalence of chytrid fungus

Scheele, Ben; Guarino, Fiorenzo; Osborne, Will; Hunter, David; Skerratt, Lee F.; Driscoll, Don


The disease chytridiomycosis, caused by the fungal pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), is a key driver of global amphibian declines. While chytridiomycosis can cause extinction, many susceptible species persist after an initial period of decline, albeit with reduced abundance and distribution. Emerging evidence indicates that amphibian abundance can recover within remnant populations, but to date, the capacity of amphibian populations to re-expand into historically occupied habitat...[Show more]
