Abstract

This is the final report for the project Experimental research to obtain a better understanding of the epidemiology, transmission and dispersal of amphibian chytrid fungus in Australian ecosystems. The report describes factors such as environmental characteristics which favour this serious amphibian pathogen, the potential means of its spread and management implications arising from research outcomes. The rediscovery of the armoured mist frog (Litoria lorica) in a situation offering environmental refuge from the fungus is also detailed. This species had previously been thought to be extinct.
