The Hot Zone

What rhetorical device is used in the following lines? What is the effect of this?

“Kitum Cave is Mount Elgon’s equivalent of the Times Square subway station. It is an

underground traffic zone, a biological mixing point where different species of animals and insects

cross one another’s paths in an enclosed air space. A nice place for a virus to jump species” (394).
