Will, you've got a good very basic outline, but we want to know more! Are you going to emphasize what the night world looks like on the reef as far as diversity and what each species does at night or focus more on general fish adaptations that allow them to function at night?

Here is what we would like to see added to your outline to help you make a great presentation and create a solid paper.

--Introductory paragraph as to why you chose the topic
--Much more detail in your outline
--Sources (At least 5 journal sources must be present) WWW sources don't count unless they are web versions of journals

Also remember that you need to "burn" a copy of your powerpoint on your topic to CD and bring it to the Bahamas. I also recommend emailing Hays a copy of your powerpoint and he can download it to his computer before we leave.

Also remember that your final draft of the paper needs to be posted online before we leave for the islands.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me.

Counting the days,

Tom Rottler
