write an abstract of an article. Follow the format of the below example exactly.
EXAMPLE – the abstract below is of a lengthy research paper. Notice that it is terse, and introduces the reader to the main points of interest only. From such a short summary, the reader can decide whether the paper is worth reading to him.
EMERGENT BIOGEOGRAPHY OF MICROBIAL COMMUNITIES IN A MODEL OCEAN
Michael J. Follows, Stephanie Dukiewics, Scott Grant, Sallie W. Chisholm. Science, Vol 315, 30 March 2007.
A marine ecosystem model seeded with many phytoplankton types, who-se physiological traits were randomly assigned from ranges of field and laboratory data, generated an emergent community structure and biogeography consistent with observed global phytoplankton distribution. The model organisms included types analogous to the marine cyanobacterium Prochlorococcus. Their emergent global distributions and physiological properties simultaneously correspond to observations. This flexible representation of community structure can be used to explore relations between ecosystems, biogeochemical cycles, and climate change.
