The most likely cause of the next pandemic will be the “spillover” of a disease from one of a select group of animals with particular immune system traits and interactions with humans.

To learn more about this topic, start your googling with these keywords:
- Zoonosis: A disease that can be transmitted to humans by animals
- Hyper reservoirs: Animals that naturally are home to multiple infectious agents.
- Spillover: Transmission of a zoonosis from an animal reservoir to a human.
- Life history strategy: An evolutionary strategy that involves tradeoffs among growth, survival, and reproduction.
