Detection and Analysis of Chytrid Fungus in North Carolina


About Our Research  

In collaboration with the Herpetology lab under Dr. Michael Dorcas, our research explores the role the recent discovered pathogenic fungus, Bd, plays in the Piedmont Region of North Carolina. We hope to bring more awareness to the possible threat of Chytrid, as well as, develope a sound and cost effective way to detect and analyze its presence in amphibian populations.
