LITERATURE REVIEW EXERCISE
In this assignment you will review some scientific literature that relates to a scientific question you
identified in your Observations, Questions & Hypotheses exercise. For this exercise you are required to
review two ORIGINAL RESEARCH PAPERS (more detail below). You are required to prepare a
structured bibliography of the two papers with attached synopsis as a means of summarizing and
reflecting your understanding of the literature’s pertinence to your chosen question.
It is critical for you to remember that it is extremely unlikely that you would find research papers that
pertain exactly to your question and hypotheses. You may find articles that address certain aspects of
your question, or that investigate your question in different locations with different species or social
groups. These can provide important insights and perspectives to your question and hypotheses without
addressing your exact question.
