dc.description.abstractAre New Hampshire amphibians affected by Chytrid fungus? Chytrid fungus, is a fungus that can cause Chytridiomycosis amongst amphibians. This amphibian disease has devastated several amphibian populations in Central and South America. Chytridiomycosis causes a thickening of the keratin layer of the skin on amphibians. Amphibians breathe through their skin. The thickening of the keratin layer of their skin, reduces effective gas exchange between oxygen and carbon dioxide, resulting in death. Using PCR (polymerase chain reaction), and gel electrophoresis, several frog DNA samples were tested and produced some positive results. This warrants further research and testing in the New Hampshire amphibian population. (Author abstract)en_US
