Chytrid in the Pyrenees

RACE team leader Mat Fisher's report from the Pyrenees:
"Lac Arlet used to be the most amphibian rich Pyrenean lakes I knew. Chytrid continues to reap its grisly crop of metamorphs this August and the Alytes are now few and far between. More newt and Rana mortalities too compared against subsequent years."
