Library resources on issues regarding botany

Positional Paper

Botanical issues are ever present. They appear in the news, as discussions in culture, or over your dinner plate. You are to write a paper taking a position on something that deals with plants.

Any topic will work: GMO's in the diet, salinization from fertilizer, veganism, or botanical supplements are just a few. In the paper you must present the science of either your topic or your position. The science used must be cited. To do this paper, you must  go to the library & talk  to a librarian.

The paper is to be typed on one page front & back, double spaced, 12 point font. All citations are to be done on a separate page. Papers are to be submitted during lecture on 1 Oct.
