Table 1 Prevalence of Bd infection in the studied species after experimental exposure to Bd. Ntot is the total number of Bd-exposed individuals surviving until sampling, Ninf is the number of infected individuals at sampling. Control individuals are not shown because all remained uninfected

From: Exposure to Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis affects chemical defences in two anuran amphibians, Rana dalmatina and Bufo bufo
