Bd on Sardinia
Jon Bielby and coauthors published a paper in the most recent issue of "Diversity and Distributions" (link to the abstract). The main result is "Both geographic and taxonomic distributions of Bd were highly non-random: we identified a cluster of infections in the north of the island and found that two species, Euproctus platycephalus and Discoglossus sardus, had a relatively high prevalence of infection within this cluster." (this is from the abstract).
