  • Often the best source of citation information
  • 1# what year is this? (don’t use page number in the sciences) 2# Year out of order, no volume number, no start and end page(not to mention mispelling of first authors name) (other differences stylistic but probably ok as long as they are consistent)Some profs may want you to follow the style in your lab manual appendix exactly
  • Wrong Year (published in 2000)In text should be Holway and Case, 2000
  • If they thought this, how it relates to what I am doing (relate to current work/experiement)
  • If they thought this, how it relates to what I am doing (relate to current work/experiement)
  • find main result in the figures (This from fig 5)– very good idea! (always pay attention to the figures and data!) good place to mine a specific point
  • Login to poll everywhere ahead of time: http://www.polleverywhere.com jpricein@gmail.com pw:jsdbioUse the invisible button at the upper right corner of the webpage pane to where it says Results (if it says instructions, click it). Click start poll (if necessary in upper right, Then you can go fullscreen if you like (lower right corner). Once you have received enough results click the upper right corner results invisibutton.

  • Needs keyword workup; show google scholarfeatures, freely available, “dumb” fast links, “smart” slow links, doc deliv. Database Page with other options
  • 1: intraspecific competition, self-thining2: salinity, 3: interspecific competition4: temperatureDependent variables: plant biomass, plant height, germination rate
  • Write on board?

    • 2.  How to structure in-text & Lit. cited entries How to write good citing sentences Howto find journal articles to cite in your competition formal report
    • 3. This is my citing sentence ([in-text citation]). 1 author – (1st authors last name [no init], year) • (Price, 2004)2 authors – (Both authors last names, year) • (Price and Burrow, 2004) (in order on paper)3 or more authors (First author + et al/and others, yr) • (Price et al., 2004) • (Price, Burrow, and others 2004) also ok • #1 rule: Be consistent
    • 4.  List all authors in order presented in the paper. Year of publication. Article title. Journal title [Full or Abbreviated – Be consistent] Volume # (Issue #): [if available] Pagination [Start page – End page]
    • 5.  Sakai > Resources > Citing the literature or http://dx.doi.org/10.1006/anbe.1999.1329
    • 6. Year Vol St Pg - end pg
    • 7.  Citing sentence (Holway and Case, 2000). Holway D and Case T. 2000. Mechanisms of dispersed central-place foraging in polydomous colonies of the Argentine ant. Animal Behaviour 59(2): 433-441.
    • 8.  Do not cite from the introduction (0) Paraphrase a main point the paper provides evidence for (+1) Be specific and clear (+1) Tie the main point of the paper to your experiment/research results (n/a here)
    • 9. Poor: does not cite a main point (0 pts)*the study does not address other species
    • 10. Average: Cites main point (+),is not specific (-) (1pt)
    • 11. Good : Cites a main point, is specific and clear (2pts)
    • 12. Your turn #1…Score this sentenceThe location of food can affect theamong-nest distribution of Argentineant workers (Holway andCase, 2000). http://bit.ly/cuc44q2a (web response) >>Link to Poll Anywhere<<
    • 13. Your turn #2…Score this sentenceArgentine ants are different fromother polydomous spp. becausethey do not discriminate among oneanother (Holway and Case, 2000)http://bit.ly/cuc44q1 (web response) >>Link to Poll Everywhere<<
    • 14. Your turn #3…Score this sentenceArgentine ant colonies can redistributeresources among nests, as evidenced bysignificant increases in population size inconnected versus unconnected nests(Holway and Case, 2000).http://bit.ly/cuc44q3 (web response) >>Link to Poll Anywhere<<
    • 15. Now grade your sentences• And tell us why… • Cites a main point? (+1) • Specific & Clear? (+1)
    • 16. Assignment for today•Find 2 journal articles that you could cite in your firstformal lab report (plant competition experiment)•Write out the correctly formatted in text citation andLiterature Cited section for both papers on yourtyped, graded sheet•You do NOT need to turn in citing sentencesEach of your two responses should look like this:(Pan and Price 2001)Pan JJ and Price JS. 2001. Fitness and evolution inclonal plants: the impact of clonal growth. EvolutionaryEcology 15(4-6):583-600.
    • 17.  Overview of Google Scholar vs Google • Whats in it • Phrase search in quotes Using get this item • Dumb and fast vs Smart and Slow • Electronic document delivery Web of Science as an alternative
    • 18. Potential competition experimentsCompetition can affect germination, as well as length and weight of both roots and shoots. How are these parameters affected by: (Your Class will choose 1 independent variable)1. competition with members of the same species for local resources?2. differences in the ability to withstand difficult conditions such as salty soils?3. competition with another species for local resources?4. differences in the ability to exploit warmer or colder temperature conditions?
