Tiziana Lembo (left) and Alison Peel take samples from bats while children watch in Morogoro, Tanzania. The researchers gather data in the field — everything from the size and frequency of bat litters, to the levels of virus in their blood serum — in an effort to build mathematical tools that will help scientists predict an infectious outbreak.
