Widespread Occurrence of Ranavirus in Pond-Breeding Amphibian Populations

  title={Widespread Occurrence of Ranavirus in Pond-Breeding Amphibian Populations},
  author={Jason T Hoverman and Matthew J Gray and Debra Lee Miller and Nathan A. Haislip},
Ranaviruses are an emerging threat for many amphibian populations, yet their distribution in amphibian communities and the association of infection with possible stressors and species is not fully understood due to historically sparse surveillance. Agricultural practices that reduce the water quality of amphibian breeding habitats (e.g., cattle access to wetlands) and environmental stressors (e.g., lower temperatures) may contribute to ranavirus emergence. We tested larval amphibians for… CONTINUE READING
