Hey everybody, I don't really know if this has any place in this Ecological Imaginings class, but maybe if we can imagine the preservation of women to be a form of ecology, not unlike the preservation of all plant life, animal life.
I just wanted to call everyone's attention to this excellent documentary currently being shown on PBS on Mon & Tues nights at 9:00 PM. I imagine you guys have lots of time to watch films, yeah! But this is an amazing series.

At this point in time, I would consider scientific journal articles to be the main writing of my discipline. In class, I brought an article that I had written last semester in which I reported results of a five week long experiment. Whenever I write a scientific journal article, there is a very strict format that I am required to follow. The introduction provides the reader with the general background information about the experiment at hand. This includes, but it not limited to, the theory behind the science, the impact of the results of the experiment, previous experimental results, how the experiment described in the paper is new and innovative, and the history and uses of the materials in the experiment. The section that follows, the results and discussion, should flow like a story and does not have to be in chronological order. This section presents the results of the experiment so that the reader will understand how the experimenter arrived at a conclusion. Following the results is a very brief experimental section and an even shorter conclusion. The conclusion is meant to be one paragraph that restates the results of the experiment and the final conclusion about the experiment.
