About This Project
Amphibian declines are occurring at alarming rates worldwide. To ensure a future for amphibians, we must urgently address this crisis and focus strategies on imperiled species. This includes the threatened frog, Eleutherodactylus cooki, found in high-risk cave systems across Puerto Rico and subjected to high levels of deadly fungal and tick parasites. Utilizing novel tracking techniques, we aim to determine how frog movement impacts between-cave parasite transmission and host survival.
