- This work quantifies the global geography of wildlife-human interfaces.
- A hierarchy of spillover risk is developed based on the nature of these interfaces.
- 40% of the world's most connected cities are close to areas of impactful spillover.
- This work identifies important conduits for potential future pandemics.
