Caption: A green frog, Rana (Lithobates) clamitans, in a pond at Washington University's Tyson Research Center. In Missouri, this frog's tadpoles are often infected with the amphibian chytrid fungus but rarely sickened by it, creating an opportunity to delve into chytrid's place in aquatic ecosystems.
