I didn't think the Ebola situation could get any scarier, but it just did. In their new book Biology of Plagues: Evidence from Historical Populations, researchers Christopher Duncan and Susan Scott make the argument that the Black Death was most likely caused by a hemorrhagic virus like Ebola, rather than the bacteria related to the bubonic plague.
