Add the following sections to the research plan we already have so far (Maximum length for this research plan is 2 pages excludes references) :

1. Methods: What species will you use? What is your study site? Describe your experimental design. Consider what controls are you using, what is your sample size. How are you analyzing the data? (will you categorize your data? or transform them in any way?, if that is not the case, you can say data will not be categorized). Looking at your type of variables, and considering the stats you have seen in class, what analysis would you choose? What is your null and alternative hypothesis?

2. Expected Results: Brief paragraph showing what you expect to find based on your hypothesis.

3. Intellectual Merit: The Intellectual Merit criterion encompasses the potential to advance knowledge and understanding within its own field or across different fields. In other words, what this project says about you? Is this a novel question? A novel project? To what extent do the proposed activities suggest and explore creative, original, or potentially transformative concepts? Is the plan for carrying out the proposed activities well-reasoned, well-organized, and based on a sound rationale?

4. Broader Impacts: How society and or particular groups will benefit from your research? How it can contribute to the achievement of specific, desired societal outcomes. For example, if you propose to work in a third world country you could propose to include students from local colleges or schools, explain why that would be beneficial. Another example. May be your research will inform a policy that should be taken to mitigate an activity that could have detrimental environmental effects. Or may be your study advances the knowledge of a particular species and that could be applied to other species which are endangered. Or may be your project could help to protect a determined area. Although the sections e and f could sound a bit weird, consider that these sections are required in most of national and international grant applications! List of references
