In his 2012 book Spillover, Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic, the science writer David Quammen predicted another Corona Virus outbreak. At the end of March 2020 the editor of Emergence Magazine, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee talked with Quammen who was sheltering in place in his Bozeman, Montana, home.

Their conversation explored the ways in which viruses are embedded in the same systems of ecology and evolutionary biology that we humans are. As we disrupt wild ecosystems and shake these viruses free, and experience the consequences, COVID-19 offers an opportunity to reimagine our relationship with the natural world.

Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee is a filmmaker, musician and executive editor of Emergence Magazine.
David Quammen is an award winning science writer, explorer and author of four books of fiction and eight of non-fiction, including Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic; and The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life.
