Anthony Waddle (M.S. Biology 2017, now at the University of Melbourne), and Rebeca Rivera and Jef Jaeger (both Biology), along with a group of former UNLV undergraduate students (Emma Keenan, Ghazal Rezaei, Joshua Levy, Yesenia Vasquez, Marlai Sai, Jessica Hill, Alexandra Zmuda, all Biology; and Hannah Rice, Kinesiology) and an Australian colleague Yorick Lambreghts have published, Amphibian resistance to chytridiomycosis increases following low-virulence chytrid fungal infection or drug-mediated clearance. The research paper is available early online in the Journal of Applied Ecology, and describes methods that improve resistance to a fungal disease that is ravaging amphibians worldwide.
