I've been emailing with Scott Farnsworth, the MS student who led the field project. I believe David Green did the diagnostics. About the other questions here is his response. 

"working towards publishing on it.  As for whether or not it is the same virus, I think you know better even than I do about the debate on that issue.  As far as I am aware that is an answer that we just don't have a definitive answer for yet."

Sounds like there will be an NPR report on the research soon.

This is indeed terrible, did the people involved published this already, do they know whether it is the same virus that killed the tadpoles and the turtles?
