The Ebola virus - the end of the civilized world

I am just curious: when people went to Mount Elgon or whatever it's called
to look for Marburg, did they only sample animal life?  When reading
"Outbreak" and the cave was being discussed (Kitum Cave?  sp?)  I
immediately thought of slime molds, animalcules, lichens etc. on the rocks
where someone could have cut his finger.  Was any of this type of slime
sampled, or just insects, reptiles, birds and mammals?

Is it impossible for a plant virus to infect animals?

-- A curious layman.
