One of the many consequences of global warming is that temperatures at the local level tend to vary more and more wildly. This is bad news for most amphibians, which are susceptible to a lethal, fungal disease called “chytridiomycosis.” This is because the increasing variability of temperature makes amphibians more likely to succumb to the disease. Studies were performed to confirm this hypothesis and most evidence shows support for it. The studies, however, were only performed with a few frog species so some biologists say that it is too early to generalize the results to all amphibians.
