    ..dendrobatidis releases a chemical that can cause host pathology, even in the absence of infection. Managing these biological reservoirs for B. dendrobatidis and identifying this chemical might provide new hope for imperiled amphibians...

    ..This work emphasises the need to re-evaluate the safety of chlorothalonil and to further link anthropogenic-induced changes in biodiversity to altered ecosystem functions...

    Environ Health Perspect 119:1098-103. 2011
    ..Contaminants have been implicated in declines of amphibians, a taxon with vital systems similar to those of humans. However, many chemicals have not been thoroughly tested on amphibians or do not directly kill them...

    ..Although both pesticides reduced Bd growth on frogs, neither cleared the infection entirely, and because we know little about the long-term effects of the pesticides on hosts, we do not recommend using these chemicals to control Bd. ..
