In Queensland, Australia, catastrophic population declines in the mid-1980s pushed the Eungella Torrent Frog, Taudactylus eungellensis, to the verge of extinction. Surviving populations have now been shown to persist with stable endemic infections of the pathogenic chytrid fungus that is thought to have caused the frogs' decline. (See Retallick, et al.)
