  • Changes in host traits help amphibian populations to survive chytrid infection Outbreaks of infectious wildlife diseases often reduce host population size, but rarely cause extinction. An exception is the ongoing global decline of amphibians (1). A pathogenic chytrid fungus, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), may affect amphibian species little to not at all, predictably reduce population size, or have a role in extinction (2). On page 1517 of this issue, Voyles et al. (3) report that at… CONTINUE READING
