Global declines in biodiversity create an urgent need to address the impact of infectious disease in the small and fragmented populations that characterize threatened species. However, the paucity of empirical data provides little ability to predict whether disease generally accelerates threatened species towards extinction or becomes less important as populations decline. Th is study tests whether plant species threatened with extinction exhibit lower disease frequencies and lower overall… CONTINUE READING
