About the Site

This website was created as part of an assignment for our Organismal Biology class at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse.  Our instructors are Dr. Meredith Thomsen, a specialist in plant ecology, and Dr. Greg Sandland, a parasitologist.  

The assignment was to research one particular organism in-depth.  We were given a list of organisms from Dr. Thomsen’s field research experiences.  The organism we chose was Plagiobothrys nothofulvus, the popcorn flower.
