Pathogens, or disease-causing microbes, rarely cause extinctions in the species they infect there are a few examples, however, where a pathogen may have resulted in the extinction of a species frogs in el cope, panama, affected by a fungus called batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, are a case-in-point one frog species.
