This selection of papers includes reflections on the pandemic from nature, i.e. natural and health sciences, which addresses aspects such as the nature of viruses and their essential role in the biosphere, epidemics as self-regulatory processes, the links between ecosystem destruction and environmental degradation and the spread of pandemics, the recovery of environmental quality due to confinement, etc.
