Web Sources in Research - GENERAL INFORMATION

The Ecosystems links and the links under the heading ALL ANIMALS in the Endangered Species Web source box take you to the Home page of a website. Look for a Search box and use your keywords (an ecosystem, an endangered species name) to search for a specific webpage in that website.

NOTE: These websites/pages should be evaluated before you use them for your research using the online Web Evaluation form linked on your project instructions and also linked here.
