Honors and Non-Honors Paper Biology     Due on Sunday Feb. 24th midnight Your research paper should be a minimum of  5-6 pages, or 2- 3 pages for non honors (double spaced, 12 point font, Times New Roman font).  The paper needs no fewer than three outside, scholarly sources (3-5 sources). Wikipedia is not a scholarly source! Be careful using sources that end in .com.  Be sure it is a reliable source (check with me if you are unsure).

Outside of the 5-6 page paper, or 2-3 page non-honors  paper please include a  Works Cited sheet, and a 1 page cover sheet that has your name and period on it– no need to put your name on the rest of the pages. The paper must utilize scientific vocabulary and demonstrate an understanding of the effect that the invasive species has had on the ecosystem.  Plagiarism in any form will result in a depletion of points, based on the degree of plagiarism. The paper should not have lengthy quotes, or numerous quotes.  I am looking for your synthesis of ideas and the research you do.   Graphics and pictures can be included outside the 5-6 page paper. Do not use the word I, or we. The paper should be written in third person. . Your audience is a person with a scientific background.  Be sure to not write about something you can’t explain yourself to me.

For the organ project you need to include the following in your paper. The amount of detail you will include will depend on if you are in honors or non-honors. Choose 1 system. 
 
The function of the organ system
The impact the organ system has on the body
What type of body regulations the organ system helps maintain
What organs are included in the body system
What tissues are involved in the organ system
What is the purpose of those tissues
How does the organ system stay in contact with other parts of the body 
how does it receive feedback from other parts of the body
If the organ system fails what impact does that have on the body
You may include one disorder or disease of that organ system. 
I do not want the disorder to be the main focus of your paper though.
