VanDeventer of the Department of Biology at La Sierra University, Riverside, California. “Mr. VanDeventer’s passion for, and commitment to the study of biology has been a continual source of enlightenment and inspiration. His heroic efforts to keep La Sierra University’s herpetology laboratory and its occupants up and running smoothly for the last 16 years goes beyond description.”|
