Publisher's Summary

For decades, when scientists and researchers focused on pandemics, they looked for vaccines and drugs. The mystery of what caused zoonotic pathogens to jump from animals to humans drew little attention. Now, a series of studies, built upon research over the past two decades, provides increasing evidence that the loss of forest creates the conditions for a wide range of deadly diseases to jump from animals to humans.

"Did Deforestation Contribute to Zika's Spread?" is from smithsonianmag.com, published on June 8, 2016.
