Article
Full-text available
The salamander plague, caused by the amphibian chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal), is one of the most devastating amphibian diseases, currently threatening the entire Western Palearctic caudate diversity with extinction. Apparently of Asian origin and recently introduced into Europe, Bsal is known from currently ca. 80 sites in...

The presence of the parasitic amphibian chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) in the Eifel Mountains, Germany, was confirmed in 2015. Since then, monitoring of selected populations of the European fire salamander (Salamandra salamandra) has been established. This species is highly sensitive to the pathogen and infection is commonl...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Seit 2008 wurde in den südöstlichen Niederlanden ein dramatischer Einbruch der Feuersalamanderpopulation beobachtet. 2013 wurde mit der Beschreibung des Krankheitserregers die Ursache erkannt. Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans, kurz Bsal, ist ein Amphibien-Hautpilz, der vor allem für Feuersalamander, aber auch für Molche, eine große Gefahr darstell...
Article
Amphibians, the most severely declining vertebrate class, are especially threatened by pathogenic chytrid fungi. Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) was most likely introduced from Asia to Europe. Here, it causes mortal skin diseases (chytridiomycosis) and Bsal-caused mass mortalities in fire salamanders (Salamandra salamandra). Individuals of...
Article
Full-text available
The emergence of the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) represents a dramatic new threat to European amphibians. This skin pathogen causes skin lesions and ulcerations in European salamanders, eventually causing their death. Bsal first emerged in the Netherlands and Belgium where it caused mass mortality in populations of fire...

Article
Full-text available
Emerging fungal diseases can drive amphibian species to local extinction. During 2010-2016, we examined 1,921 urodeles in 3 European countries. Presence of the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans at new locations and in urodeles of different species expands the known geographic and host range of the fungus and underpins its imminent th...

Article
Full-text available
Seit mindestens 2010 tritt in den Niederlanden ein neuer Amphibien-Chytridpilz auf, der inzwischen auch in Belgien nachgewiesen wurde. Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bs) befällt nur Schwanzlurche und könnte eine Bedrohung für einheimische Arten werden. Der anscheinend aus Asien stammende Pilz verursachte starke Einbrüche der befallenen Feuersal...
Article
Full-text available
The Eurasian beaver Castor fiber, formerly occurred across the Palaearctic, but was nearly eradicated in the 19th century. Due to reintroductions in the 20th century, beaver populations are increasing and now extend into highland areas. Natural still waters are scarce in highlands of Central Europe. Therefore the question arises, "Are beaver ponds...
