symposia. In addition, he has authored or co-authored 27 extension publications. Jeff has also shown excellence as a teaching assistant in a study-abroad class titled "Natural History of the Serengeti," a 2.5-week course in which students observed and recorded mammal, bird, and insect behavior in northern Tanzania. Jeff incorporated several arthropod experiences into the course, including blacklighting for scorpions, close encounters with safari ants, and termite mound observations.

Dr. Christopher M. Barker (Pacific Branch) obtained his B.S. in biology and his M.S. in entomology from Virginia Tech. His M.S. research under Dr. Sally Paulson examined habitat preferences and phenology of two mosquito species, Aedes triseriatus and Aedes albopictus, in La Crosse virus transmission foci in Virginia. He also used remote sensing and GIS to relate abundance of these two mosquito species to land cover. After completing his M.S. research, Chris moved to Bakersfield, California, where he worked with Dr. William Reisen on a NOAA-funded project to study the influence of climate on mosquito abundance and arbovirus transmission. He moved to Davis, California in 2003 to begin work on a Ph.D. in entomology and an M.S. in epidemiology under Dr. Bruce Eldridge. He completed his degree in epidemiology in 2005 and his degree in entomology this fall. Using Bayesian statistical methods that account for spatial and temporal dependence among trap counts, Chris has developed statewide models that address regional differences in phenology of two mosquitoes of public-health importance, Culex tarsalis and the Culex pipiens complex. He has examined the effects of early-season meteorological conditions and the extent of adjacent larval habitat on the abundance of adult female mosquitoes and the relationship between vector abundance and arboviral transmission. Chris has received a number of awards, including the William C. Reeves Award from the Mosquito and Vector Control Associ
