Principles of Biology: Slug Research Project

Think about your search terms

The words you use to search for information make a big difference in the information you find.  

For example, the results of a keyword search for slugs in Science Direct Health & Life Sciences database include articles about sea slugs, polymer slugs, pneumatic slug conveying and many other articles that use the word slugs.

Searching for "garden slug," "terrestrial slug," or "slug AND pulmonata,"  are much more specific and will reduce the number of articles you find and make it more likely that they will be useful to you.
