NEW LOCATION: Streets Pub and Grub
1804 J St. Sacramento
21+ event, FREE TO ATTEND

Join us for our first Sac Science Distilled at our new, roomier location! You’ll hear short, idea-centered talks from two local experts in the sciences. After the talks, we’ll have a lively discussion that brings science into context for everyday life.

Our speakers will be Dr. Lauren Camp of UC Davis Entomology & Nematology  and Hung Doan of UC Davis Plant Pathology.

Parasites of animals and plants are typically hidden from sight. Animal parasites such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, worms, and insects, can occur in blood (heartworm, malaria); organs (tapeworms, Giardia); and skin, hair, or fur (screwworm, fleas). Plant parasites can occur in all parts of the plant – roots, stem, xylem and phloem, leaves – and include a diverse group of organisms such as other plants, bacteria, fungi, viruses, insects, and nematodes. You can also find both animal and plant parasites in places outside of hosts, like soil and water. In our presentations we will discuss where plant and animal parasites live, and how they hide from view.
