Caption

Agalychnis lemur populations have declined severely in recent years, due at least in part to the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Smith et al 2009). For example, A. lemur was regularly seen in Santa Fe, Panama, until chytrid fungus was detected in 2002 (Brem and Lips 2008). This species has experienced decline in other localities in Panama, including the Fortuna reserve (Chiriqui province, Lips 1999), and Altos de Campana National Park (Cocle province, Woodhams et al 2008).
