We have created this webpage for our Organismal Biology class at UW-La Crosse taught by Dr. Anita Baines and Dr. Barrett Klein. The theme for this year’s organism was “Decomposing Arthropods”.


Hi my name is Callie Horstman and I am a senior at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse. I am a Pyschology major and Biology minor. I am also Pre-Chiropractic. I will attend Palmer Chiropractic School after graduating in May and couldn’t be more excited! Besides studying (!!!!!), I love to practice hot yoga, knit, sew, craft, read, travel, and spend time with my family and friends. I am also a Certified Nursing Assistant so naturally I love helping people and I also love poop!- no one gets more excited when you poop than Nurses and their Assistants (Clearly this organism was a perfect fit for me!)  If you have any further questions about the habitat or nutrition of  A. prodromus you can contact me at: Although I am not an expert, I can certainly do the best I can or point you into the direction of someone who can help!      




My name is Bobbi Jo Schuttemeier.  I grew up on a rural farm where we raised a variety of animals.  Throughout the years we have raised dairy cows, pigs, sheep, and rabbits.  We also have horses, dogs, and cats on the farm.  Growing up I was an active member in 4-H and FFA.  I thought my picture on the right fit well with our organism because of the fact that these beetles occupy animal dung.  My partner and I made this website as part of a project for Organismal Biology at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  My individual part of the website consisted of two topics: 1. Reproduction and 2. Interactions with other species.The rest of the website my partner and I worked on together.  If you have any questions regarding the specific topics I wrote about, or anything else on the website, please feel free to contact me at  I will do my best to answer your questions or refer you to someone who can help you.   We hope you enjoyed learning about this organism, Aphodius prodromus!
