For this assignment, you will need to use the library's article databases to locate peer-reviewed scholarly articles. Note that the library's article databases are different from Google. To get the best results you will need to search them in a slightly different way than Google.
For example, if your question is:
What factors affect the heart rate of Daphnia?
These are the main concepts of your question:
What other words might work to find useful results? Think of synonyms and similar words. (Try heart beat or cardiac instead of heart rate. Try water flea or Crustacea instead of Daphnia.)
Use these words in the article databases, rather than typing in a long string of words. Click on the tab Finding journal articles in the left column of the page to continue!
