Meet the Authors

I am currently a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and originally from Plymouth, Wisconsin. I am studying pre-medicine with a major in biology and a minor in Spanish with plans to graduate in 2017 and then go on to pursue an M.D. For this website, I was responsible for the Form and Function and Reproduction pages. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me!

I am a junior at the University Of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  I recently transfered from University of Baraboo/Sauk Country where I received a Liberal Arts Science Associates Degree with an emphasis in Biology.  Currently I am majoring in Psychology/Pre O.T.  The pages that I personally worked on were the habitat and interactions.  I hoped you enjoyed learning about Anisomorpha burestoides and please e-mail me regarding any questions you may have about our "Devil-Rider."


We are currently enrolled in an Organismal Biology course at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and created this website for a course assignment. We would like to thank our professors Dr. Barrett Klein, Dr. Meredith Thomsen, and Dr. Greg Sandland for all their help and insight throughout the semester, as well as all the scientists and photographers whose work with Anisomorpha buprestoides helped us in creating this website. Finally, we hope you have learned a lot and grown to love the southern two-striped walking stick as much as we do! Thank you for visiting our webpage!

Created in April 2014.
