The interplay of fungal and bacterial microbiomes on rainforest frogs following a disease outbreak

Donald McKnight, Roger Huerlimann, Deborah Bower, Lin Schwarzkopf, Ross Alford & Kyall Zenger
Emerging infectious diseases are a serious threat to wildlife populations, and there is growing evidence that host microbiomes play important roles in infection dynamics, possibly even mitigating diseases. Nevertheless, most research on this topic has focused only on bacterial microbiomes, while fungal microbiomes have been largely neglected. To help fill this gap in our knowledge, we examined both the bacterial and fungal microbiomes of four sympatric Australian frog species which had different population-level responses to...
