Step four: concluding remarks (2 pages)

Purpose of this Assessment
The purpose of the Final Assessment for this competency is to demonstrate awareness of the use of the Scientific Method and discuss a specific biological situation within the context of the subject of biology from a list of potential topics.
Items Required for Submission
The item required for submission is a 7−10 page paper in APA format with the four distinct sections detailed below for any of the topics you select.
Step ONE: Introduction (1−2 pages)
Introduce the topic that you selected. Provide details for how the Scientific Method can help to expand
your understanding of that topic and why you picked that particular topic to research. Step TWO: Context of Biological Kingdom (2−3 pages)
Biology is a BIG subject area (biological kingdom). Your particular topic happens to originate in the biological kingdom somehow. Provide a detailed explanation for that relationship using your new-found knowledge of biology.
Final Assessment: Outline and Rubric 1
Principles and Concepts, Level A Final Assessment: Outline and Rubric Step THREE: Specific Topic Under Discussion (2−3 pages)
As well as possible, discuss the topic that you selected. What appealed to you about the topic? Are there any unusual properties or applications for your topic? Try to connect the topic to the biological content you just finished reviewing in the competency.
Step FOUR: Concluding Remarks (2 pages)
Project ten years into the future. What will conditions be like for the topic you selected then, and what was necessary to accomplish over that time period? If you apply the Scientific Method now to your own work, what might be your next steps in understanding the specific topic more completely? Try to discuss the topic scientifically, and not just from emotions or opinions.
Step FIVE: Complete Checklist for Submission
Before you submit your work, check to see if you have met the criteria noted below. Did you:
● ●
✓ Introduce the topic you selected in the Introduction section in your paper and discuss how the Scientific Method can help to expand the general knowledge that we have on that topic?
✓ Situate your particular biological situation within the overall workings of the Biological Kingdom in the Context section? Is the connection between the two fairly well established?
✓ Provide a full explanation of your particular biological situation and use content from the competency where appropriate in completing the Specific Topic section?
✓ Include a plausible 10-year projection and detail the steps required in the Concluding Remarks section?
✓ Include a description of how to increase understanding of your situation using the Scientific Method?
✓ Demonstrate professional writing and presentation style by:
o Paraphrasing technical language or use quotes and citations, to avoid plagiarism issues? o Proof-reading your paper to ensure accurate spelling, grammar and punctuation?
o Meeting the specified requirements of length and formatting specifications?
o Providing citations using correct APA format if appropriate?
Step SIX: Submit Your Work
Your completed files should be submitted through the Final Assessment page of your competency.
Please note, for files smaller than 10MB (e.g., most Word documents), use the corresponding “+UPLOAD STUDENT FILE” button to upload your Final Assessment documents.

Other comments or observations:

make a dichotomous key.and answer the three question
Tips
• Identify some of the features of the species. For example: if you choose 5 types of tree what are some of the shapes of the leaves? What color is the bark? etc.
• Look at photographs of the features of your chosen species.
• https://plants.ces.ncsu.edu/ – good site to identify characteristics
1. Palmetto Tree (Sabal palmetto)
2. Live Oak (Quercus virginiana)
3. Southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora)
4. Slash Pine (Pinus elliottii)
5. Yellow Poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera)
6. Swamp Chestnut Oak (Quercus michauxii)

• give a one sentence summary of the main message of the article in simple language and place under the title • indicate the title of the paper you are writing about under the summary sentence and make sure to include it in your reference list • references should be in the nature style

The goal of this assignment is to take a primary research paper (attached), read it and understand it, and then demonstrate the understanding by writing a precis, or brief summary / review of the paper in your own words that is clear, concise and understandable. These guidelines should be followed in writing your News and Views: • Articles should be ~900-1000 words – not including reference list at end • Double spaced • Please give sub-titles to sections Context, Results, Insight and References • Give a title to your article – Titles should contain no punctuation marks or abbreviations. • Give a one sentence summary of the main message of the article in simple language and place under the title • Indicate the title of the paper you are writing about under the summary sentence and make sure to include it in your reference list • References should be in the Nature style

How would your life be changed if we decided to end this mutualistic relationship?

Most domesticated animals and plants that we use for food benefit from a mutualistic relationship with us. In exchange for food, we care for them and ensure their continued reproduction. However, through crossbreeding and genetic engineering (to increase food production) we have eliminated many of the adaptive traits they need for survival in the wild. How do you feel about this form of mutualism we have imposed on other species? How would your life be changed if we decided to end this mutualistic relationship? Do you believe that domesticated animals we raise should be treated as humanely as possible during the time we are fattening them up for slaughter? Explain. What effect might this have on the price and availability of meat produced from such animals? (20 sentences)

Other examples of mainstream news sources for articles include the new york times, the san francisco chronicle, the oakland tribune, the los angeles times, the economist, wired, scientific american, time, or newsweek.

Directions:
To encourage you to read current events related to biology in the news, in specified weeks, you are required to identify, read, and analyze an article from the popular press that relates to a current issue in biology. The article should relate as much as possible to the current topics we’re studying in class.
I like to use the Science Daily. You search for the topic you are interested in, and it shows you a list of recently published articles wIth an excellent summary.
Other examples of mainstream news sources for articles include the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Oakland Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the Economist, Wired, Scientific American, Time, or Newsweek. Many other credible news sites are on the Internet; ask if you have any questions. The CSM Library offers free online access to many sources. Check out the CSM Library OneSearchLinks to an external site. webpage to get started (sign-in required).
Your Discussion Post:
– Include your name and the date for which you’re submitting the article
– Include complete citation information for your article, including the hyperlink to the website URL/source, authors, date of publication, and page numbers
– 5-7 sentence summary of the main ideas of the article
– 5-7 sentence reflection on your response to or ideas about the article
– 3-5 thoughtful questions that the article raised for you personally
Article:
