Chytridiomycosis: an emerging disease

Chytridiomycosis is the most formidable infectious disease known to infect amphibians. It has the potential of causing sporadic deaths in some populations, and 100% mortality in others. Since the mid 1990s the causative agent Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis has been identified, sampling protocols and diagnostic assays developed, surveys conducted, investigations into treatment and management and control undertaken.
