Endangered Species Research
In the course of this research, you'll be required to cite at least three credible sources. As you look for resources keep these things in mind:
- Use a variety of resources that expand your knowledge, rather than simply repeat information found in other resources.
- Pay close attention to publication dates. Dated information may be no longer be accurate when you are engaged in scientific study.
- This is a hot topic, often the focus of personal projects. Steer clear of resources that show an individual or emotional bias. Look for pages sponsored by credible organizations and backed by scientific research.
