Effects of the pathogenic water mold Saprolegnia ferax
on survival of amphibian larvae.
They found that some stocked lakes had high concentrations of a fungus called Saprolegnia ferax
Among other findings, they have linked amphibian declines in Oregon to elevated levels of exposure to UV-B radiation in sunlight, as well as to infection of embryos by a fungus, Saprolegnia ferax
We studied the effects of a pathogenic water mold, Saprolegnia ferax
, on competitive interactions between the Cascades frog Rana cascadae and the Pacific treefrog Hyla regilla.
Perhaps as a result, a funguslike pathogen, Saprolegnia ferax
, was able to rip through and kill many clutches of exposed eggs.

and Neurospora crassa.
