COVER PHOTO: To examine the role fungal and bacterial microbiomes play in infection dynamics of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), McKnight et al. (Ecosphere, Volume 13, Issue 7, Article e4037; https://doi.org/10.1002/ecs2.4037) sequenced both fungal and bacterial amplicon sequence variants taken from 169 frogs, such as the Litoria dayi (Australian lace-lid frog) pictured here, in three national parks in the Wet Tropics of Queensland, Australia. L. dayi has been seriously impacted by chytridiomycosis, and their populations have not recovered from the disease outbreak, despite having the highest relative abundance of inhibitory bacteria. The authors found that fungal and bacterial microbiomes were positively correlated for both richness and beta diversity, but they did not find an association between the fungal microbiome and Bd infection in the populations studied.
