Chytridiomycosis is a disease caused by the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. It is thought to be responsible for amphibian declines throughout the world and in some cases mass extinction. The fungus infects the outer layer of skin and may causes thickening of the epidermis, blistering and sloughing. The spores of the fungus are easily spread through water and thrive at cool temperatures. Some species have shown to be resistant to the disease.

A slightly cleaned up version of Mark's (I just changed some formatting)

Chytridiomycosis: A disease caused by the fungus [Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis.] It is thought to be responsible for amphibian declines throughout the world and in some cases mass extinction. The fungus infects the outer layer of skin and may causes thickening of the epidermis, blistering and sloughing. The spores of the fungus are easily spread through water and thrive at cool temperatures. Some species have shown to be resistant to the disease.

And should we have entries like:

Chytrid Fungus: See [Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis].

Bd: See [Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis].

Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis: A fungus of the class Chytridiomycetes that causes [chytridiomycosis] in amphibians. Often abbreviated as Bd or refered to as chytrid fungus due to its disease causing role.
