The One, The Only, Macadamia tetraphylla

     Hello, and welcome to the webpage all about Macadamia tetraphylla.  Now I know some of you are asking yourselves, "what is that?"  Well, here you go: Macadamia tetraphylla is one of 10 species of Macadamia which produces a grayish-green nut. Most people just know the fruit of this species, which they generically refer to as "macadamia nuts".  Some other common names are the "Queensland Nut" or the "Nut Oak". 

Want to learn more?  Navigate the links on the side to learn many interesting facts about this species of plant and why it is an important organism in our world.

Hi, my name is Jared Hartung, I am a student from the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse.  I created this website  to teach and inform people about the Macadamia tetraphylla through many aspects including: classification, habitat, reproduction, nutrition, and interactions.  I believe that if we learn more about the other organisms that live in our world, then we will begin to know ourselves better.  I truly enjoyed making this website.  Not only have I found so many interesting things about this species of plant, but I have learned many things about other organisms that interact with it, that are related to it, or that just share a common trait.  On that note, I hope you enjoy the rest of the site.
