Recent research in humans, livestock, and wildlife using high-throughput next-generation sequencing (NGS) has identified that resident microbiota play an essential role in disease resistance, host health, and adaptation to biotic and abiotic stressors. Since amphibians are currently facing population declines and extinctions attributable to anthropogenic pressures and emerging diseases, an understanding of the effects of microbiome dysbiosis and mitigation is a prerequisite for amphibian… CONTINUE READING
