Expanding Distribution of Lethal Amphibian Fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans in Europe


Spitzen-van der Sluijs, Annemarieke; Martel, An; et al; Schmidt, B R (2016). Expanding Distribution of Lethal Amphibian Fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans in Europe. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 22(7):1286-1288.

Abstract

Emerging fungal diseases can drive amphibian species to local extinction. During 2010–2016, we examined 1,921 urodeles in 3 European countries. Presence of the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans at new locations and in urodeles of different species expands the known geographic and host range of the fungus and underpins its imminent threat to biodiversity.
