Abstract

Road-killed common toads (Bufo bufo; n=1,740) from Flanders, Belgium, were tested for ranavirus and Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) using polymerase chain reaction. Both infections were present at a very low prevalence (<0.2% with a confidence interval of 95% for ranavirus and 0.63% for Bd).
