Methods Abstract

Submitted by mglater on Thu, 03/01/2018 - 20:22

    As part of the first assignment for Writing in Biology at University of Massachusetts Amherst, the author created a methods section for a scientific figure which he created. The author took photographs of a flowering plant found on the school campus, and created a figure of the images along with a map of the plant range. The methods of these steps were shared with a classmate, who attempted to recreate the figure. The figures had differences in the shape of the flower, the quality of the pictures, and some miniscule details of the pictures. These differences are believed to be due to the trimming of the plant in between the taking of the original and the replicate images, and the fact that different photographers had different items with them to use in taking the picture.
