The ecology of chytrid lineages in Southern Africa

Pria Natalia Ghosh
The inter- and intraspecific diversity of microbial communities is known to be an important, but difficult to disentangle, factor in pathogen ecology. Conspecific or interspecific microbial interactions may result in competitive suppression, the evolution of pathogens to greater levels of virulence, environmental niche separation and coexistence or even result in the generation of novel recombinant pathogen genotypes. Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), the causative agent of chytridiomycosis, is a uniquely destructive pathogen – it is the proximate...
