We decided on this particular organism due to the fact that we are both interested in medical biology.  We found the resistance to the cardiac glycoside that the beetle had was incredible and wanted to learn more!   Please visit this link to discover a variety of organisms that can be ivestigated within the medical biology field!
    Throughout our study and research of the Red Milkweed Beetle, we learned a lot not only about the organism itself, but the interactions it has with other organisms and how important they are to the ecosystem.  Even if this particular organism does not interest some, we hope that one can take away from our website  the fact that no matter how small or unimportant an organism may seem, they all indeed are an important part of life on Earth and the interactions between things, living or not!
