Finding the full text of an article

 Look for the 360 link to full text button to open the full article.

Options for getting to the PDF will open in a new window. Sometimes the link will take you to the journal, not the individual article. Use the citation information for the article to get to the right year, volume and issue of the journal.

If the library doesn't have it, request the article for free from Interlibrary Loan: On average, articles arrive digitally in 13 hours.

Basic Databases

Try these databases and search resources to get started. 

Fisheries & Wildlife Databases

These are more specific to  fisheries and wildlife information than the general science.  That makes them more efficient to search.

Finding social & political Information

In addition to the biological information, you will need to find economic and statistical information, and even political and social commentary for the case study.
