UMaine Amphibian Fungus Lab Noted in Research Report

The science website PhysOrg has posted an article about the discovery of novel and hybrid strains of a fungus lethal to amphibians that was made possible through an extensive collection of frog fungus cultures from around the world at the Maine Chytrid Laboratory in UMaine’s School of Biology and Ecology. UMaine mycologist Joyce Longcore, a research associate professor, has studied, isolated and cultivated aquatic fungi known as chytrids for more than 25 years and is considered one of the world’s foremost experts in the field.
