Assignment Objectives:

  1. Find  two (or more if you need to use interlibrary loan) article citations that relate to your specific area in interest in biology and a topic considered in the BIO 2103 (botany, ecology, or evolution).
  2. Improve your skills in literature searching by comparing three SPU library databases using advanced search techniques including Boolean operatores (e.g. AND; OR), truncation sysbols and other search approaches to construct the optimal search for your topic in each database.

Once you have found your citations, please check them agains this list to make sure they are appropriate for this assignment.  My articles:

  • are on the same topic, also my topic is from the approved list, or has been accepted by Carrie Fry
  • are related to botany, ecology, or evoluation AND related to my specific area of interest in biology
  • come from a sub-discipline of biology, not a broad journal such as Nature, Science, Scientific American, PLOS One, etc. (also articles education journals such as American Biology Teacher are not appropriate for this assignment)
  • are either a review or research article, not a news item, book review, etc.
