Geographic variation in life history characteristics of amphibians : a review
Summary 1. This review examines the intraspecific patterns and differences in life-history traits of amphibian populations living at different altitudes and latitudes. Specifically we examined… Expand
The Novel and Endemic Pathogen Hypotheses: Competing Explanations for the Origin of Emerging Infectious Diseases of Wildlife
Chytridiomycosis, caused by the fungal pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, is an emerging infectious disease implicated in declines of amphibian populations around the globe. An emerging… Expand

Chytridiomycosis is a recently emerged, infectious skin disease of amphibians that has been linked directly to mass mortalities, population declines, and species extinctions worldwide. An… Expand
The chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis is non‐randomly distributed across amphibian breeding habitats
The chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis has been implicated as the causative agent of mass mortalities, population declines, and the extinctions of stream-breeding amphibian species… Expand
Large‐scale seasonal variation in the prevalence and severity of chytridiomycosis
The chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis has been implicated as the causative agent of mass mortalities, population declines and the extinctions of studies have shown that the prevalence of… Expand
The Decline of the Sharp-Snouted Day Frog (Taudactylus acutirostris): The First Documented Case of Extinction by Infection in a Free-Ranging Wildlife Species?
Infectious diseases are increasingly recognized as the cause of mass mortality events, population declines, and the local extirpation of wildlife species. In a number of cases, it has been… Expand

Survivorship in Wild Frogs Infected with Chytridiomycosis
Chytridiomycosis is an emerging infectious disease that has been implicated as the causative agent of many recent amphibian population declines and extinctions that have taken place in relatively… Expand
Is Chytridiomycosis an Emerging Infectious Disease in Asia?
The disease chytridiomycosis, caused by the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), has caused dramatic amphibian population declines and extinctions in Australia, Central and North America, and… Expand
