Our weekly seminar series featuring internal and external speakers in the field of ecology and evolutionary biology. This seminar will be in-person and livestreaming on Zoom (link this page).

Abstract:
Two fungal pathogens have had devastating effects on amphibian biodiversity at a global scale. I will review some of these impacts and explore, through functional genomic studies, the mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions that underlie resistance or susceptibility in host species. I will then describe our efforts to rediscover some of the species lost to this pathogen in Brazil.
