Globally, amphibians are threatened by the fungal disease chytridiomycosis, which is killing frogs around the world. To date, it has not been found on Madagascar which is home to over 400 species of frogs. This project will sample Madagascar amphibians to select effective probiotics in order to develop a proactive conservation response for the impending arrival of the deadly amphibian pathogen in Madagascar.
