How to Approach the Assignment Use the C.R.E.A.T.E. approach; as you read, think about the following issues:
• Consider: Think about what the authors were trying to demonstrate.
• Read: Read the paper in enough depth to understand what they did and how they did it.
• Elucidate aims/ hypotheses: What were the aims of the study/ the hypotheses the authors were testing?
• Analyse data: Look at the data generated, and the methods used to analyse it. Does the analysis address all aim, or produce clear support (or refutation) of the hypotheses?
• Think of the next
• Experiment: What could be done next to confirm or refute these results, or to gain a better understanding of the biological/ecological processes?
You have a maximum of 500 words EXCLUDING questions, and not counting figures, for your assignment. Include the reference of your paper in Harvard biology format.
When you answer your questions in the assignment do not write out the question – just indicate the question number (i.e. Question 1).
Questions 1. Identify the major concepts in the Introduction and link them to create a concept map, as we did in Practical 1. You may use software such as XMind (www.xmind.net) or similar, or hand-draw your concept map. The concept map is considered a figure and will not contribute to the 500 words limit.
Question 2. Select one sentence that includes many scientific terms and put its meaning into plain English, rather than using technical jargon. We want you to “translate” a sentence that can be understood by someone who is not familiar with science. Include both, the original sentence and your translation. The original sentence will be excluded from your wordcount.
Question 3. Identify and explain the aims of the paper. What is the central point the authors are testing or investigating?
Question 4. Did the authors address the aims? After reading the entire paper, do you think the authors addressed the aims adequately? Was the method designed well to address the aims? Were the aims referred to in the discussion and conclusion?
Question 5. Are the conclusions that the authors came to justified based on their results? After reading the entire paper, do you think the authors conclusions are justified based on their results, or have they over-stretched the implications of their results? Is the discussion overly speculative, or is it valid and supported by their data?
Question 6. Select one figure from the paper and add your own annotations (comments) to indicate what the various parts of the figure mean. Your annotations will not contribute to the 500 words limit – but be concise in your explanations. Do not copy the figure legend or plagiarise the text in the article. Do not just explain what the figure is showing but indicate its meaning.
Question 7. If you had the lab and equipment, what would you do next to further investigate these findings? Design an experiment to do next; clearly articulate the aim of your experiment, and the approach you would take.
8. Include the reference of your paper in Harvard biology format.
