Brandon Rentmeester:

   As a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse majoring in Biology, I am only just beginning to scratch the surface of the vast biological knowledge my undergraduate education has in store for me.  I look forward to fulfilling my biology major here at La Crosse, then hopefully moving on to dental school.  Science has always been an interest of mine since my youthful days of observing bugs in the woods behind our house, or catching fish in our backyard pond.

   The pages "Nutrition" and "Habitat" were my research focal points for this project, as Clay and I collaborated to learn about the orangethroat darter, Ethiostoma spectabile, which was a new species for both of us! 

   If you have questions or comments about the site, feel free to email me at rentmees.bran@uwlax.edu.  I would love to hear your thoughts and comments!

    I am a Junior at UW-La Crosse and I majoring in Biology. I recently switched majors from Psychology to Biology, so it has been a great thrill to be able to have hands on experience with the scientific process. After graduating from high school, I moved to the Twin Cities and attended a community college where I wasn't exposed to many science classes. And if I was exposed to any scientific discipline it was merely in the form of lecture. Since attending UW-La Crosse, each of my science classes has had some sort of hands-on-experience either through a lab requirement in the course or a field research day outside.

    For this website, I did research for the "Adaptation" page and the "Reproduction" page.

Thank you for taking the time to read our website and we hope that we were able to offer interesting and insightful information about orangethroat darters,
E. spectabile.
