Low impact of chytridiomycosis on frog recruitment enables persistence in refuges despite high adult mortality

Scheele, Ben; Hunter, David; Skerratt, Lee F.; Brannelly, Laura A.; Driscoll, Don


The global chytridiomycosis pandemic caused by the pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (. Bd) is implicated in the apparent extinction or severe decline of over 200 amphibian species. Many declined species now only persist in isolated remnant populations. In this study we examine how remnant populations coexist with Bd, focusing on disease impact on adult survival and recruitment potential in the chytridiomycosis-threatened frog Litoria verreauxii alpina. Using skeletochronology we found...[Show more]
