Alford et al. question the working model underlying our test for a link between global warming and amphibian disappearances, and Di Rosa et al. criticize our emphasis on a single proximate agent, the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. Both teams report key pieces of the amphibian-decline puzzle and new evidence from different parts of the world that climate change is a factor in these losses. Here we show why our working model was appropriate and highlight the complexity of the… Expand
