David Quammen’s latest article, “Deadly Contact: How Animals and Humans Exchange Disease,” is in the October issue of National Geographic, and is available online here. Quammen lives here in Bozeman and holds the Stegner Professorship in the History and Philosophy Department at Montana State University, and back on October 11th, he spoke on the topic at the Museum of the Rockies. The lecture, “Thirteen Dead Gorillas: Zoonotic Disease and the Future of Human Health,” is now available online here. He entered the auditorium in a Hazmat suit (the picture is from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle of October 12th). I’m still bummed that I missed his talk on Darwin and religion last spring.
