Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal
) is an emerging fungal pathogen that threatens global salamander diversity.
With a Bsal threat looming in the United States, Joe Mendelson, a herpetologist at Zoo Atlanta, urged anyone who notices a dead salamander to report it via the new online Amphibian Disease Portal.
If the Bsal pathogen slips into North America, such widespread species as the Eastern newt could prove disastrously susceptible, said Ana Longo of the University of Maryland and the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.
The agency however decided to keep BSAL's INR150m non-fund based limits at F4(ind).
The revision was prompted by the deterioration in BSAL's provisional financial for fiscal 2010, as displayed by its leverage (net debt/EBITDA), which is projected to be around 6.0x, while EBITDA/interest is seen at 1.33x, the analysts said.

Site selection was based on reported amphibian deaths, apparent negative amphibian population trends, preventive Bsal
surveillance in susceptible populations, or geographic proximity to known outbreak sites.
Until regulations are tightened to cope with containing Bsal
, the researchers call for an immediate ban on importing live salamanders.
Furthermore, in-line BSALS
was used to investigate the solidification process of PP/PEOc blends under the natural cooling conditions in real time after mixing.
