Moving animals on a landscape through translocations and reintroductions is an important management tool used in the recovery of endangered species, particularly for the maintenance of population genetic diversity and structure. Management of imperiled amphibian species rely heavily on translocations and reintroductions, especially for species that have been brought to the brink of extinction by the fungal pathogen, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. One striking example of disease-related declines and associated management efforts is in California’s Sequoia and...
