    Citing References


    You should support your arguments with a reference from the news or science literature when possible. Though I want you to keep your audience in mind - something like the science pages from a newspaper, where you are communicating with your peers and more senior folks - I also want you to cite your sources similar to how it would be done in a science journal.

    So, to provide two examples:

    Asymmetric dispersal, caused by coastal ocean currents, may be an important determinant of species range distributions (Byers and Pringle, 2006).

    Byers, J.E. & Pringle, J.M. (2006) Going against the flow: retention, range limits and invasions in advective environments. Mar. Ecol. Prog. Ser., 313, 27-41.


    Asymmetric dispersal, caused by coastal ocean currents, may be an important determinant of species range distributions (1).


    1. Byers, J.E. & Pringle, J.M. (2006) Going against the flow: retention, range limits and invasions in advective environments. Mar. Ecol. Prog. Ser., 313, 27-41.


    When in doubt, mimic the style from one of your references. Do not simply say "the Byers paper" or refer to (Byers, page 28). And remember, write as though it is for an audience other than Dr. Wares.
