PODCAST
The spread of diseases from animals to humans—called zoonoses—is a public health issue as demonstrated by the spread of such diseases as Ebola and COVID-19, which scientists hypothesize originated in wild animals. Tune in for highlights from our webinar led by CIFOR Director General Robert Nasi, with CIFOR Associate Nathalie van Vliet, CIFOR Senior Associate John E. Fa and CIFOR Research Consultant Lauren Coad.

What happens in ‘empty forests’ when animals disappear?
Amid debates over the COVID-19 pandemic and its relationship to wild animals and deforestation, scientists suggest that exploring areas where novel viruses have emerged over the past century and mapping them onto patterns found in forested landscapes could help explain what happens when the balance between pathogens and hosts is altered to the extent that viruses can jump between animals and humans.
