We focus on the issues David Quammen has written about so effectively in his book, SPILLOVER:  ANIMAL INFECTIONS AND THE NEXT HUMAN PANDEMIC, in which he tracks down the animal origins of such diseases we humans are now susceptible to, including viruses such as HIV-AIDS, SARS, EBOLA, HENDRA, MARBURG, and INFLUENZA, and bacteria such as LYME DISEASE and Q FEVER.  Among other questions he investigates are:  "WHY DO STRANGE NEW DISEASES EMERGE WHEN THEY DO, WHERE THEY DO, AS THEY DO, AND NOT ELSEWHERE, OTHER WAYS, AT OTHER TIMES? IS IT HAPPENING MORE NOW THAN IN THE PAST?   AND THE BIGGEST QUESTION:  WHAT SORT OF NASTY BUG, WITH WHAT UNFORESEEN ORIGINS AND WHAT INEXORABLE IMPACTS, WILL EMERGE NEXT?


He is a contributing writer for National Geographic magazine.  SPILLOVER:  ANIMAL INFECTIONS AND THE NEXT HUMAN PANDEMIC is more than a page turner about how microbes cross from animal species into humans and evolve into infectious diseases, it is also a chronicle of the many far flung journeys David Quammen has taken to some of the most remote parts of the globe, to interview the scientists in the field, who search for the animal reservoirs from which they come.
