First some background on why this webpage was made, this website is part of a large project with a goal to accumulate a wide diversity of organisms and accurate data about them, called database. The University of Wisconsin La Crosse organismal and animal biology classes every semester contribute these pages, using peer reviewed literature sources. This website was created in the fall semester of 2013.

My goal in is to become a high school Biology teacher along with maintaining great relationships with my friends and family. Besides helping others in the classroom, I invest my time in the UWL Women's Soccer team and other organizations such as Special Olympics and Relay for Life.  By completing this assignment, I have learned so much about this specific plant but most importantly the great diversity among the different classifications of plants. I would like to thank Dr. Thompson and Dr. Perez for introducing me to such an interesting segment of Biology. Author of Habitat and Interactions. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at
