Tasmanian Chytrid Management PlanThe scope of this plan relates to managing the spread of chytrid fungus and minimising its impact on amphibians in Tasmania. Threatened and endemic amphibians are the focus within the plan due to concerns for their conservation status and uniqueness respectively. This plan also broadly considers a number of additional key threatening processes that may affect the host-pathogen dynamic, with potential to result in expression of chytridiomycosis.
