ENVR 221 - The Ecology of Food and Farming

Getting Started with Research

For this class, you will use interdisciplinary research methods to explore the intersections of Ecology and History. These disciplines have different strategies, vocabularies, methodologies, journals, and databases. This page contains general academic research to start your research, with more specific resources outlined for each discipline in the left-hand menu. 

Start with a Reference Source:

Reference sources will give a brief overview and introduction to a particular broad topic. Encyclopedias, handbooks and other types of reference materials will give you context and a bibliography of citations for you to do further research. Generally, use reference materials as a place to start research and lead to you to other sources.
