Comments on Wikipedia: While we encourage the use of Wikipedia both for a survey of the species involved (hell, we use it all the time!), and as a landing pad for citations, we do not suggest you take Wikipedia as your only source. Check the uncited statements, search google scholar, and fill them in -- improve Wikipedia for everyone! If you do a substantial rewrite of a Wiki article, be sure to be logged in (accounts are free), and show us -- we'll consider giving you some extra credit for it! That said, this is a DeCal and it should be taken for fun, so don't stress too much about your source list for this class.

Have any requested resources for this class? Email Philip to request a link or resource, and we'll provide it if we can!
