Paging practicing scientists and or grad students. I'm working on a term paper right now that's a bit different than anything I've ever done. I've written a solid number of "regular" scientific papers but this paper for a Bio Geography class is kind of odd because I won't be doing any original research. The papers I've written in the past have always centered around experiment(s)/studies I've worked on in labs or the field. TL;DR - I'm writing a scientific paper without any original work in it I'm just wondering if anyone has written a paper like this and if they have some tips or better a few examples for me to work off. I haven't really been able to find many papers like this (all published papers have at least some original analysis). My best description for what I'm supposed to write is a summary of several papers linking all of their findings to explain a single event (in this case changes/declines in arctic tern (Sterna paradisea) in the N. Sea).
