Chytrid infection is a worldwide pandemic of the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. As a result of a combination of this infection and climate change, almost a third of the 5,743 known amphibian species are categorized as Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable according to the World Conservation Union. In this podcast, I describe some of the latest reasearch findings on chytrid, and a very interesting online conference about chytrid.
