Abstract Several pathogens affect amphibians, but a chytridiomycete fungus, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, is of particular interest because this pathogen is linked to localized amphibian population declines and extinction of species. Species-specific infections and pathogen distribution are poorly understood, particularly in members of Caudata. We found B. dendrobatidis in adult Eurycea cirrigera (Southern Two-lined Salamander), a species not previously reported as susceptible to this fungal… 

Experimental infection of North American plethodontid salamanders with the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis.

It is suggested that Plethodon species in the southeastern USA are at risk of becoming infected with B. dendrobatidis and developing chytridiomycosis and some animals may have survived with or cleared the infection.

Low Prevalence of Chytrid Fungus (Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) in Amphibians of U.S. Headwater Streams

Differences in the prevalence of Bd between stream- and wetland-associated amphibians in the United States may be related to species-specific variation in susceptibility to chytridiomycosis or habitat differences.

Preparing for invasion: Assessing risk of infection by chytrid fungi in southeastern plethodontid salamanders.

Bsal exhibited its highest value of pathogenic potential in a species that is already declining (Desmognathus auriculatus), and this index provides additional information beyond the standard measures of disease prevalence, intensity, and mortality, because it leveraged these disease parameters within each categorical group.

SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF AMPHIBIANS AND REPTILES

--The life history and ecology of Plethodon serratus were studied in two populations in southcentral and southeastern Missouri, USA. One population was located on private land in Perry County and the

Response of two terrestrial salamander species to spring burning in the Sierra Nevada, California

Terrestrial salamanders may be vulnerable to prescribed fire applications due to their moist, permeable skin and limited mobility. We present data collected on terrestrial salamander populations in a

The Type Locality Project: collecting genomic-quality, topotypic vouchers and training the next generation of specimen-based researchers

A pilot Type Locality Project to collect voucher specimens and genomic-grade samples from amphibian type localities in the state of Virginia, USA so that these samples can serve as proxies for cases in which obtaining genomic data from the type specimen is not possible.

Risk Analysis and Crisis Response under the Background of the Belt and Road ( RAC-18 ) A First Epidemiological Survey of Skin Fungus in Free Range Pelophylax Nigromaculatus in Hunan Province , China

Epidemiological investigation of fungus in amphibian was conducted from Hunan province of China to isolate fungus from skin of amphibians. Specimens from the skin of local Pelophylax Nigromaculatus

Experimental data support the conclusion that cutaneous chytridiomycosis is a fatal disease of anurans, and it is hypothesize that it is the proximate cause of these recent amphibian declines.

Spread of Chytridiomycosis Has Caused the Rapid Global Decline and Extinction of Frogs

It is important for the scientific community and conservation agencies to recognize and manage the threat of chytridiomycosis to remaining species of frogs, especially those that are naive to the pathogen.

The data suggest that R. sphenocephala larvae might be resistant to infection, even when occupying the same wetland as the infected R. catesbeiana, and stresses the importance of additional field surveys to document how this pathogen is affecting amphibians globally.

Historical Evidence of Widespread Chytrid Infection in North American Amphibian Populations

To investigate the global distribution, historical occurrence, and infectiousness of this pathogen, postmetamorphic and adult amphibians collected between 1895 and 2001 from 25 countries were examined for the presence of chytrid fungi in the epidermis.

INVESTIGATING THE POPULATION‐LEVEL EFFECTS OF CHYTRIDIOMYCOSIS: AN EMERGING INFECTIOUS DISEASE OF AMPHIBIANS

Simple models of the dynamics of the disease within an individual lake are presented and it is asked whether the current understanding of chytridiomycosis is consistent with the field survey observations of extinction due to the disease over a wide range of host population sizes, and persistence of frog populations with the disease at some sites.
