Abiotic and biotic factors affecting B. dendrobatidis(Bd) zoospores. A) Bd zoospore attachment and encystment varies with temperature in culture and is thought to alter infectivity . B) The biotic environment can also alter Bd abundance. Shown here is the effect of inoculated population size of grazing Daphnia on the quantity of Bd zoospores over three days (A. Lauer, see Appendix for methods).
