Project: Amphibian nutrient metabolism as a clue for their sensitivity to chytridiomycosis
- project duration
- 01/10/13 – 30/09/17
- By means of comparative studies across vertebrate classes and among amphibians, the typical traits of nutrient metabolism in amphibians is unraveled. Based thereon, we will investigate if nutrition and nutritional status plays a role in the sensitivity for chytridiomycosis, the main cause of death for amphibians.
