The fungus is a parasite was the cause of the disappearance of many species of amphibians on several continents
New research has shown a deadly disease that threatens the survival of frogs in the world, originated from East Asia, and international trade was almost certainly responsible for the spread of the disease, writes with reference to .
Frog fungus-chytrid fungus parasite was the cause of the disappearance of many species of amphibians on several continents, since the 1970-ies. A parasitic fungus that eats frogs practically live inside quickly spread around the world and leads to a steady extinction of frogs.
Scientists have long could not understand, where and how did these strains of fungi killers. Finally, an international team of researchers led by scientists from Imperial College London, including four scientists of One Health Research Group, James cook University, traced the ancestor of the pathogen, which was discovered in East Asia.As it turned out, a fungus that eats frogs, quickly spread around the world due to the growth of trade between countries. Sometimes deadly microbes quickly spread to all corners of the planet because of the different kind of interactions between countries.
