Researcher Filling out Bsal Datasheet

Detailed Description

A researcher fills out a datasheet while swabbing salamanders for Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal). Bsal is a fungal disease affecting salamander species in Europe and Asia. There is a possibility that Bsal could be introduced into wild populations of salamanders in the US, and early detection of Bsal infection would allow for fast implementation of disease management.
