    • Amphibian Populations Cycles and Long-Term Data Sets 

      Wissinger, Scott A.; Whiteman, Howard H. (University Of California Press, 2005-01-01)
      Although most researchers agree that many amphibian populations are declining, there is debate about how to distinguish human-induced declines from natural population fluctuations. As with many species, amphibian populations ...
    • Impacts of thermal mismatches on chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis prevalence are moderated by life stage, body size, elevation and latitude 

      Cohen, Jeremy M.; McMahon, Taegan A.; Ramsay, Chloe; Roznik, Elizabeth A.; Sauer, Erin L.; Bessler, Scott; Civitello, David J.; Delius, Bryan K.; Halstead, Neal; Knutie, Sarah A.; Nguyen, Karena H.; Ortega, Nicole; Sears, Brittany; Venesky, Matthew D.; Young, Suzanne; Rohr, Jason R. (Wiley, 2019-02-28)
      Global climate change is increasing the frequency of unpredictable weather conditions; however, it remains unclear how species‐level and geographic factors, including body size and latitude, moderate impacts of unusually ...
    • The thermal mismatch hypothesis explains host susceptibility to an emerging infectious disease 

      Venesky, Matthew D.; Cohen, Jeremy M.; Civitello, David J.; Rohr, Jason R.; Sauer, Erin L.; McMahon, Taegan A.; Roznik, Elizabeth A. (John Wiley & Sons, 2017-02)
      Parasites typically have broader thermal limits than hosts, so large performance gaps between pathogens and their cold- and warm-adapted hosts should occur at relatively warm and cold temperatures, respectively. We tested ...
