R global amphibian declines are now unequivocally linked to chytridiomycosis, an emergent infectious disease caused by the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) (Berger et al. 1998, Longcore JE et al. 1999, Daszak et al. 2003, Lips et al. 2006). This pathogen shows low genetic diversity across wide geographic areas (Morehouse et al. 2003), little correlation between fungal genotype and geography (Morehouse et al. 2003, Morgan et al. 2007), a wavelike spread across landscapes (Lips… CONTINUE READING
