About the Author...

Hello, my name is Sarah Kruse. I am a freshman at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse majoring in Biology with a biomedical concentration. I plan to attain an undergraduate degree and continue on to further my education before pursuing a career in the medical field.

I am from Zumbrota, Minnesota, a small town in the southeast portion of the state. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, travelling, reading, watching movies, and playing sports.

I created this page as a research project for my Organismal Biology class. Each student enrolled in this class has created a webpage about an organism that displays some type of medicinal purpose. Collectively, these pages may be found at www.MultipleOrganisms.net.

I chose to research Punica granatum because it is known to have a wide range of medicinal purposes. It is a plant that has been around since ancient times and, although it is a traditional food in countries throughout Southwest Asia, it is not commonly consumed in the United States. Hopefully this webpage will help make it more well known!

This project has been an eye-opening experience for me. I have learned an enormous amount of information about the pomegranate. More importantly, I have come to understand that each organism in the ecosystem relies on and interacts with the others in order to survive.

After exploring this site and reading all about the pomegranate, I hope you can realize the unique attributes this plant has to offer and gain a greater appreciation for life in general. Enjoy!
