TL;DR: Analysis of group transport history, disease prevalence in co-quarantined birds not sent to Des Moines and climatological data implicated Des Moines as the likely site for initial exposure, although information is not conclusive, stress and concurrent disease certainly contributed to the severe mortality in this group of penguins infected with P. relictum.
