Rye - Secale cereale


Secale cereale - Rye


Secale cereale is the hardiest grain and is grown the world over, for human and livestock consumption. It grows well in many climates and soils, and is frequently A rye field with blue skyused as a rotation crop. The versatility of rye is unmatched in the food grain realm. Rye is also a great source of nutrition containing fiber, protein, calcium, and vitamin A. Rye bread is a tasty alternative to white or wheat bread, and many people prefer it for sandwiches. No one eats a ruben on whole wheat. If you continue deeper into this page, you will discover the high points of rye's classification, habitat, adaptations to its environment, how it gets its nutrition, rye's methods of reproduction, and interactions with other organisms.


This website was made as a course requirement for Organismal Biology at University of Wisconsin La Crosse and is part of a much bigger project: Multiple Organisms.net. Multiple Organisms.net is a overarching website that has been in existence since 2007. Multiple Organisms contains web pages on hundreds of plants and animals found throughout the world. Some of these are The Grey-foot Lance Tooth, the Ginkgo, and the Coco Plant.  Each semester the new Bio 203 class adds their own pages to the amorphous being that is Multiple Organisms. Each year has a different theme. This years theme is edible organisms. As time passes, Multiple Organisms.net will continue growing and hopefully help to educate people the world over and share the wonder of nature with the masses. I also have included a bibliography if for any reason someone wants to research rye more.


Rye FieldMultiple Organisms is spearheaded by Dr. Thomas J. Volk, Professor of Biology at UW La Crosse and Dr. Gregory J. Sandland, Assistant Professor of Biology at UW La Crosse. Dr. Volk and Dr. Sandland teach Bio 203 jointly. Together they are the driving force that keeps this great database moving forward.


This site was made by me, Anthony (Tony) Schuh. I am a freshman Biology major at UW La Crosse. This semester I am taking Organismal Biology and it is the most challenging class that I have encountered thus far. Though Biology 203 requires copious amounts of study and  hard work, the information and concepts that I have been exposed to this semester are interesting and fun. The things taught in this class will not only apply to my future classes and career, but to life in general.
