Spread of Chytridiomycosis Has Caused the Rapid Global Decline and Extinction of Frogs
The global emergence and spread of the pathogenic, virulent, and highly transmissible fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, resulting in the disease chytridiomycosis, has caused the decline or… Expand
Epidemic Disease and the Catastrophic Decline of Australian Rain Forest Frogs
In the montane rain forests of eastern Australia at least 14 species of endemic, stream-dwelling frogs have disappeared or declined sharply (by more than 90%) during the past 15 years. We review… Expand

The efficacy of a number of disinfection treatments was tested on in vitro cultures of the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, the causative agent of chytridiomycosis in amphibians. The aim was to… Expand
Decline in the prevalence of chytridiomycosis in frog populations in North Queensland, Australia
In the early 1990s stream-associated amphibian populations in tropical upland North Queensland experienced severe declines resulting in extinction of three species, local elimination of four species,… Expand
Diagnosis of chytridiomycosis in amphibians by histologic examination
An improved controller for opening and closing a vertical blind over a door or window opening. A rotatable mechanism pivots individual louvers or vanes in the window blind. A cord has first and… Expand
Survival of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in Water: Quarantine and Disease Control Implications
Amphibian chytridiomycosis is an emerging infectious disease of amphibians thought to be moved between countries by trade in infected amphibians. The causative fungus, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis,… Expand
Assessing spatial patterns of disease risk to biodiversity: Implications for the management of the amphibian pathogen, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis
1. Emerging infectious diseases can have serious consequences for wildlife populations, ecosystem structure and biodiversity. Predicting the spatial patterns and potential impacts of diseases in… Expand

The global trade in amphibians entails the transport of tens of millions of live animals each year. In addition to the impact harvesting wild animals can have on amphibian populations, there is… Expand
Possible modes of dissemination of the amphibian chytrid Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in the environment.
Amphibian chytridiomycosis caused by Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis has spread at an alarming rate over large distances throughout sensitive frog populations in eastern Australia, Central America and… Expand
Distribution of the amphibian chytrid Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis and keratin during tadpole development
A large outbreak of chytridiomycosis occurred in captive metamorphs of Mixophyes fasciolatus that died between 9 and 25 days post metamorphosis. The mortality rate in infected tubs was 100% and more… Expand
