Professor of Biology Catherine Bevier coauthored a paper in the January 2020 issue of Ecology and Evolution titled “Environmental influences on and antimicrobial activity of the skin microbiota of Proceratophrys boiei (Amphibia, Anura) across forest fragments.” Together with her research colleagues in Brazil, Bevier’s research seeks to answer such questions as “what factors determine the microbial community profile that can establish over the amphibian skin? In other words, what fraction of an environmental microbiota has the potential to colonize the skin, what elements become a filter, and how do intrinsic and extrinsic factors matter in this context?”
