AbstractHere we report for the first time the presence of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in Romania. Seventyseven amphibians belonging to four species were sampled in four regions of Transylvania: Sighisoara, Corund, Miercurea-Ciuc and Apuseni Mountains. Infected individuals were found in Sighisoara and Apuseni. Long term studies in Sighisoara region suggests that no unusual mass mortality occurs in the amphibian populations sampled for this study. We suspect that amphibians coexist with the chytrid. Further studies are urgently needed to understand the origin, ways of spreading, distribution, and potential impacts of Bd on amphibian populations in this country. © NwjZ, Oradea, Romania, 2013.
