Overview

Der tödliche Sprung vom Tier zum Menschen

Neue Krankheiten, die sich auf der ganzen Welt ausbreiten, sind ein gefährliches Problem, und es scheint, als würden sie an Bedrohlichkeit zunehmen. Seuchen wie AIDS, Ebola und SARS erreichen dank moderner Verkehrsmittel schnell mehrere Kontinente. Ihnen ist eines gemeinsam: Die Erreger sprangen vom Tier auf den Menschen über – der sogenannte Spillover. In einem ebenso spannend erzählten wie beunruhigenden Buch schildert der preisgekrönte Wissenschaftsautor David Quammen wie und an welchen Orten bevorzugt Viren, Bakterien und andere Erreger auf den Menschen übertragen werden. Er begleitete die führenden Forscher bei der Suche nach dem Ursprung der Seuchen zu Gorillas in den Kongo, beobachtet sie bei der Arbeit mit Fledermäusen in China und Affen in Bangladesch und erklärt, warum die Gefahr des Spillover gestiegen ist. Noch ist nicht klar, woher die nächste große Seuche kommt, aber ihr Ausbruch ist nur eine Frage der Zeit.
