Where is camp?
BBC 2.0 begins and ends at the UC Davis Campus in Davis, CA. Specifically in the Academic Surge Building, room 1375. This is conveniently between the Bohart Museum of Entomology and the Museum of Wildlife and Fish Biology. It is where parents and guardians need to sign-in at noon on Sunday and sign-out at noon the following Saturday. Parking is FREE on campus on the weekends. Please park in Lot 46. This is alongside the Academic Surge building.
Meet the instructors!
Patricia Bohls is a second year M.S. student in entomology at the University of California, Davis. She is working under the guidance of Dr. Elina Niño. In May 2015 she graduated from Hiram College with a double major in Neuroscience and Environmental Studies and a minor in Biology. While at Hiram she was captain of the Cross Country team and General Manager of the Stone Soup Vegetarian Cooperative. In the past she was awarded a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates internship and has a publication accepted by the Ohio Biological Survey. At UC Davis she is researching the efficacy of several new biopesticides for use against Varroa destructor in honey bee (Apis mellifera) hives. After graduating with her M.S. she hopes to become a professor at a local community college. In her spare time she enjoys running and participating in the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international living history group with the aim of studying and recreating mainly Medieval European cultures and their histories before the 17th century.
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Entomology and Nematology department at UC Davis. I specialize in the classification and evolution of insects, with emphasis on the ants. My research rotates between molecular work with DNA, to the hot and humid tropics of Central and South America, with frequent stints at the microscope in between. I am passionate about understanding the origins and evolutionary history of all life, and I am particularly fond of teaching at all levels, from college students to elementary school children. This year's Bio Boot Camp is going to be awesome---between day and night hikes around the Sagehen field station, to ecological projects, and the kitchen.
Hello, my name is Andrea Carrillo (also goes by Andie). I am a currently a 4th year Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology undergraduate and will be graduating with the class of 2017. I enjoy hiking and being outside. Once in a while, I will walk or bike around the arboretum to get some fresh air, and I always find myself looking and listening for birds. My favorite sport to play is volleyball. I also enjoy reading books on my off time.
Fun Facts: I was born and raised in the Los Angeles area and came to UC Davis after high school. I have been working for the UC Davis Museum of Wildlife and Fish Biology for three years. I specialize in preparing mammal specimens for the museum collections. This year I started working on the Putah Creek nest box project, which means I get to hold and band baby birds!
