Students will be expected to
produce a paper covering, in detail, a topic of their own choosing that
encompasses one of those covered in this course, complete with references to
material cited. Examples include, but
are not limited to: population ecology, population genetics, competition,
predation, co-evolution, ecological genetics, or conservation biology/genetics.
You must cite at least 16 sources of
reference material (at least half of which are academic papers). Examples of citable publications include
academic papers in professional journals including Scientific American or
Discover, specialty books, or reputable web sites (citing their title and URL
address). The review paper must be typed
and double-spaced, and figures and tables are encouraged. It should be a minimum of 15 pages in length
but not exceed 25 pages including references.
It must be well written using good grammar and paragraph structure.
