OBJECTIVES

Biology of Hosts
Do viruses and chytrids differ in effect on host population dynamics?
Can we predict epizootics?

Biology of Pathogens
Are iridoviruses or chytrids newly-introduced amphibian pathogens?
Has the virulence of iridoviruses that infect amphibians changed?
Do chytrid isolates and viral isolates differ in pathogenicity?

Biology of Host-Pathogen Interactions
Do amphibians differ in susceptibility to iridoviruses and chytrids?
Is the likelihood of declines altered by host movement or habitat characteristics?
Have viruses and chytrids coevolved with their respective hosts?
Are environmental variables interacting to suppress amphibian immune systems or to increase pathogenicity?
