Sarah Herbert

s MSc explores the relationship between temperature and the chytrid fungal disease that has been devastating frog populations around the world.  She has surveyed North Island frog populations for chytrid and is trying to find out what role climate change may play in the future dynamics of this disease in New Zealand.  She is also looking at a way to track movement of chytrid within and between amphibians.
