Re: Mystery virus ravages UK frogs (Dale)

Your CFC sources are from widely ranging dates. The first was from May of 1996 and the second was not dated but appeared to date back to the early 1990'2. Only the last article was recent and, yes, the Scientific American article was the one I had seen.
As for the effect of the UVB, I was referring to the work done by the Oregon State University team. I haven't seen the detailed description of the method (guess I'd need to read the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science for that), but from the short description in the article posted, it sounds as if they made a good attempt to have a properly controlled experiment that showed a strong connection between increased exposure to UVB and deformities and embryonic mortality. Interesting, that's all.
