About the Author

Hello, my name is Russell Eide, and I would like to thank you for visiting my website. I’m currently a freshman at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse. My major is in Biology with a biomedical emphasis. I am also working on a minor in nutrition. I plan to continue school after I finish my undergraduate and work to become a physical therapist.

This website is a project for my Organismal Biology class. Students of the 2011 spring semester of the class have been assigned the theme of medicinal organisms. Click here for the list of the other medicinal organisms that were researched. The wild yam has both nutritional and medicinal uses, which made it perfect for someone with my major and minor to study.

I hope you enjoyed my website and learned something new too! If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me at my e-mail, russelleide@live.com.
