Data from: Salinity stress increases the severity of ranavirus epidemics in amphibian populations

Emily Hall, Jesse Brunner, Brandon Hutzenbiler & Erica Crespi
The stress-induced susceptibility hypothesis, which predicts chronic stress weakens immune defenses, was proposed to explain increasing infectious disease-related mass mortality and population declines. Previous work characterized wetland salinization as a chronic stressor to larval amphibian populations. Thus, we combined field observations with experimental exposures quantifying epidemiological parameters to test the role of salinity stress in the occurrence of ranavirus-associated mass mortality events. Despite ubiquitous pathogen presence (94%), populations exposed to salt runoff had slightly more...
