Saving amphibians
Assistant Professor of Biology Vance Vredenberg's efforts to save amphibians were profiled in a Nov. 1 piece in Science Nation.  Disease, pollution and loss of habitat are killing off hundreds of species of amphibians, with the biggest threat coming from an aquatic fungus that has proven deadly to hundreds of species of amphibians. "Some people think it's climate change itself that's triggering the release of this pathogen from potentially being something that doesn't cause a problem to something that's suddenly really, really deadly," Vredenburg said. "It's almost as if humans began dying by the millions from the common cold."
