We aim to be a repository for Bd and Bsal data from field and biocollection samples. Only by the community coming together to aggregate data will we be able to understand the disease dynamics of this major cause of amphibian declines worldwide.
We will add relevant news and resources to our posts. Please let us know if you have news or information you would like to share.
Currently you can read Posts from two categories: Bsal News and Resources
