UCFC during the pandemic

UCF employees must work remotely in these crazy times, so fortunately we have a large backlog of trap samples from surveys, bioblitzes and ecological projects to sort through, and then pin, label and database the specimens.  There are also many specimens to identify – doing so often leads us to finding new distributions, natural history, and even undescribed species. The current Bug Closet techs (pictured: Alessandra, Vikki, Rachel, and Dylan) are well-trained and experienced, and so reliably able to take their work home with them.
