The Hot Zone

What rhetorical device does Preston use in the following lines?

"Living cells ordinarily stick to the bottom of a flask to form a living carpet- cells prefer to cling to something when they grow. This carpet had been eaten by moths. The cells had died and drifted away, leaving holes in the carpet."
