Welcome to the world of parasites! Hopefully you have come to get down and dirty with the discovery of this friendly-looking but monstrous parasite, Giardia lamblia. Also known by the names of "Giardia, Giardia intestinalis, Giardia duodenalis", and "beaver fever", it is the number one cause of diarrhea in the world today! To get started, check out the Classification page.

This website was an assignment my partner Sage and I created for our Organismal Biology class at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse for the 2014 spring semester. If you would like to see many other interesting organism webpages that fellow students at UW La-Crosse have created all the way back from the year 2007, you can follow this link to MultipleOrganisms.net.
