Genetic analysis finds greater threat in frog-killing fungus

case with this fungus, we could consider restricting public access to infected sites during those times."

As the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service considers listing the mountain yellow-legged frog as an endangered species, biologists are racing to find ways to staunch the spread of the frog-killing fungus.

"This frog used to be the most abundant amphibian, and perhaps the most abundant vertebrate, in the whole Sierra Nevada," said Knapp. "Over the past 30 years, it has disappeared from up to 95 percent of its historic range, and its absence is impacting other organisms. Garter snakes that used to prey on these frogs are now declining. The frog's decline is leading to an unraveling of a high-elevation ecosystem."
