Frogs & Coffee: Biodiversity Impacts on Jamaican Coffee Farms

$1,000 Awarded to Jennifer Brown in 2014

For her HSU masters thesis, Jennifer Brown tested 800 frogs on 27 Jamaican coffee farms for the presence of chytrid fungus, a disease which can have devastating effects on amphibian populations. Her findings will help inform coffee plantation staff how management practices can help support native frog species.
