Across the globe, a mysterious epidemic is attacking the frog population, causing malformation and population decline. Though the exact cause is unknown, many scientists believe environmental components are to blame. Anne Maglia is hoping to help stop this epidemic. “These guys have been around for millions and millions of years,” she observes, “and when we see them starting to decline, we have some pretty good ideas that the environment itself is in bad shape.”
The UMRB grant allowed us to develop software, make these 3D reconstructions, and use them to answer interesting questions—which then allowed us to get an NSF grant.
