    About This Project

    We're currently studying a population of the common midwife toad (Alytes obstetricans) in Cambridge, England. The species is non-native and our current goal is to screen the population for the amphibian chytrid fungus (Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis), which has been implicated in amphibian population declines worldwide. As an introduced species, the disease is one of the biggest threats to our native herpetofauna.

    Blast off!
