Identify a Current Biodiversity Issue
You'll want to start by gathering context about a current biodiversity issue. The sources below will give you an introduction to different biodiversity controversies. As always, remember to keep the date of the article in mind when searching: an old article might give you an interesting research topic, but will not give you up-to-date info about what is happening.
Start by searching for "biodiversity" in the upper right search box. You'll find articles related to the ocean, wildfires, endangered species, food, and many others. CQ Researcher articles can be long. Be sure to use the table of content in each article and control F to find the information you might need.
Gale is a good database to discover possible topics related to biodiversity with context as well. Start by searching biodiversity and then looking through a scientific article that looks most interesting to you. You can also use Gale to look up words or theories you might not recognize, such as "Tropical Forest Conservation Act."
