The fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) causes a lethal skin disease of amphibians, chytridiomycosis, which has caused catastrophic amphibian die-offs around the world. This review provides a summary of host characteristics, pathogen characteristics and host-pathogen responses to infection that are important for understanding disease development.
